GARDEN VOLUNTEER WORK DAY

Volunteer to Stay Healthy and Help Newfield's School Gardens!
 
You've probably heard about, or even experienced, the great feeling that comes with doing volunteer work. Many people report that supporting a favorite cause provides a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction. Studies have found that doing good deeds plays a role in physical well being as well as providing special and emotional benefits. 
 
Participating in volunteer activities is good for people of all ages. Volunteering as a family is a great way for children to learn social responsibility and for parents to model behaviors that demonstrate their values. 
 
Why not explore volunteering as a way to support a cause, connect with others and reap some potential health benefits-a win for everybody!!
 
Join us on Saturday, May 21st for Community Build Day from 10am-2pm to weed, mulch, plant and build at Newfield's three beautiful school gardens. Volunteers will be fed delicious food and appreciated in abundance. Sign-ups are very appreciated so we know how much food, tools, etc we'll need but no one will be turned away! There will be a sign-in tent on the front lawn. For more info, to sign up and/or to lend tools please contact Andrew Battles at ABattles@newfieldschools.org.  If you're unable to attend please consider donating to the NCS Green Fund to support continued garden programming. Donations can be sent c/o The Business Office, 247 Main Street, Newfield, NY 14867.
