YMCA Kids Triathlon

When was the last time that your child experienced the thrill of crossing a finish line after swimming, biking, and running? Triathlons are a great way for children to stay fit and get active but they can also help teach your child life long skills that can be applied in every aspect of their lives. Volunteers are needed to help make this event possible! August 10th, 2014 @ 9:00 am (Mission Park)

Growing Veggies and Getting Dirty

At Vinegar Flats Community Farm on the banks of Latah Creek (1635 W 26th Ave), we need help from groups and individuals to work with us in the field planting, weeding, harvesting, and performing other general labor.  There are opportunities to learn and hone gardening skills regardless of prior experience.  Produce from our farm is sold affordably at farmers markets, distributed through CSAs in food-insecure neighborhoods, and donated to several meal sites in the community, and our work is made possible by our many generous volunteers who work and learn with us throughout the season from mid-March through October.

GROUPS. With groups, we can be flexible with days and times, especially with some advance notice. Generally 2-3 hour time slots work best.

INDIVIDUALS. We love individuals to work with us on a one-time or on a regular basis.  Generally weekday mornings and early afternoons work best for us, but we can be flexible.

We also have monthly volunteer work days, which can be found on our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/VinegarFlats/events
