Public Team #1: Fremont Abbey Arts Center (Fremont) - maximum of 25 volunteers, ages 5 and up
The Fremont Abbey Arts Center strives to be a "third place" within the community, providing a welcoming space beyond work and home to gather with others for eye opening performances, workshops, collaboration and classes. The Abbey aims to host diverse arts education programs with our focus on music, visual, and literary arts for youth and adults residing especially in Fremont and North Seattle. Our desire is to help people from all walks of life and income levels to learn & develop themselves through experiences with the arts.
By cleaning, repairing, and helping with the Arts Center, you're empowering 1000's of people of all ages & incomes to be able to experience the arts, music, and community... and thereby greatly improving their quality of life. Your volunteer work is integral to our sustainability as a lean and limber small nonprofit since our budget mostly goes to providing programs. General tasks that teams typically help with: Adopt-a Street cleanup around the neighborhood Landscaping (simple weeding, trimming, etc.); Cleaning the building, washing windows, etc.; Possibly painting depending on skills/age; Putting up event flyers around Fremont area Building easels and other arts equipment; Organizing closets, art supplies, etc.
Public Team #2: Beacon Food Forest Community Garden (Beacon Hill) - maximum of 30 volunteers, ages 5 and up
The goal of the Beacon Food Forest is to design, plant and grow an edible urban forest garden that inspires our community to gather together, grow our own food and rehabilitate our local ecosystem.
We are looking for volunteers to help grow and expand our PUBLIC VEGETABLE GARDEN and EDIBLE LANDSCAPE! Join us on Seattle Works Day and learn how to: build new soil, create paths for the 1.5 acre expansion of our site, plant a wide range of heirloom vegetables, make compost, and identify "weeds" - some of them are edible. You will work in small teams lead by experienced gardeners and horticulturalists and you can rotate between different tasks. Work will happen from noon to 3:30 p.m., then we enjoy snacks and celebrate what we've accomplished at the AFTER PARTY! Meet in the gathering plaza at the top of the hill, near S Dakota St.
Public Team #3: Seward Park Audubon Center (Seward Park) - maximum of 40 volunteers, ages 12 and up
We need your help to keep Seward Park's forest healthy! We are removing invasive species from the park. At 2 pm, we'll head out on a short nature walk to see the native forest and its inhabitants. Make sure you dress for the weather! Boots are great, but any closed toe shoes will work as long as you're OK with getting them dirty. We'll provide the tools and the work gloves. And make sure to bring your water bottle, we will have a large bottle on hand for re-fills.
