GARDEN: Literacy for Environmental Justice
Candlestick Point Eco-stewards, a project of Literacy for Environmental Justice (LEJ) works to cultivate the next generation of community leaders in SF’s Bayview-Hunter’s Point neighborhood. Bayview-Hunter’s Point youth participate in a paid green-collar internship focusing on environmental education, community-based ecological restoration, civic activism, and good old-fashioned hard work in Bayview’s expanding green spaces.
Spend a few hours of your Saturday getting your hands dirty as you work side-by-side with these budding horticulturalists to restore their community one seed at a time. At the end of the project there will be a potluck BBQ. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided, but please bring something to share with the group!
CSPF’s Park Champions Program holds volunteer work days in state parks across California. This program was created in response to the unprecedented budget cuts that California State Parks face right now. In partnership with California State Parks, Park Champions provide consistent, sustainable volunteer support in the areas of park maintenance and beautification.
Park Champions projects improve the quality, safety and preservation of our state parks. Projects in the past year have included trail repair, invasive plant removal, habitat restoration, the rehabilitation of an historic orchard, fence construction, bridge construction, and re-painting park structures. If you enjoy volunteering outdoors, want to work with a fun group of people, and you want to make a difference in our state parks, then become a Park Champion and join us for the next work day happening near you!
Nursery Volunteer Day
Join us for a great day supporting the Literacy for Environmental Justice’s Candlestick Point Native Plant Nursery on Saturday, October 20.
You can drop in and help at anytime between 10:00am-1:00pm. Lunch will be provided at 12:30pm. This volunteer activity helps ensure the nursery is in great shape and that plants are ready to be planted in public parks right here in Southeast San Francisco, contributing to wildlife habitat and enhancing our open spaces.
If you haven’t registered in advance, don’t worry! You can drop-in Saturday morning and register at the nursery. We’d love to have you.
