Two non-profit organizations based around sustainable agriculture and community engagement, 21 Acres Center for Local Food and Sustainable Living and Growing Veterans, partnered up for an inaugural volunteer work party in March 2014. Growing Veterans has a farm site near Bellingham and a couple Outpost sites, one of them being at 21 Acres. Since January and every second Saturday of the month, Growing Veterans and other dedicated community members volunteer at 21 Acres by helping to restore wetland and farming projects. It has been a strong partnership that has helped improve the quality of the environment and has established friendships along the way.
In recent collaboration with Growing Veterans, 21 Acres is hosting in additional volunteer work party on September 11th with the company, Outerwall. 50 volunteers from the company will be helping out with various farming tasks and outdoor restoration projects on 9/11 along with Growing Veterans and 21 Acres to commemorate and support organizations that are involved with local veterans and their continuing efforts. We are very grateful for this growing and successful relationship.
If you would like to volunteer at the Second Saturday work parties, 21 Acres will still be hosting its next volunteer opportunity on September 13th from 10am-12:30pm along with the support of Growing Veterans.
