The work you will be doing might include sustainable campus  beautification, construction of pollinator gardens, maintenance of the  SOU Community Garden, and- you guessed it, tree planting! This means  everyone must be dressed to work (long pants, closed toed shoes, SPF,  possibly a sun hat) and please bring a water bottle! We will provide all  other materials (gloves, tools, etc). Each volunteer will be assigned  to a working group at one of the various locations (The Farm at SOU, The  SOU Community Garden, Glenwood Park, or throughout the campus with  landscaping).

Tell your friends, post on social media, and get the word out to anyone in the community to let them know they are invited to make a substantial and lasting impact on our campus and parks in Ashland.
