November Build and Beautify, a Volunteer day at the Center

On the second Tuesday of every month, Build and Beautify is a day for volunteers to get involved with our programs from our home base.

Solana Center Garden

November Build and Beautify activity:                E-waste shed assembly + suprise activity!

Solana Center offers free e-waste recycling to community members at our Center. We are now expanding to small house hold appliances and other hazardous materials. Since we are collecting more, we need a lot more space! Help us assemble our big new shed to house our recycling collection. If there is time after, we will paint the shed with recycling-inspired art to bring a little beauty and artistry into this very important process!

If we get enough volunteers, we will split into two groups and have a second, helpful task. If construction is not your thing, come by and request to be put in the mystery activity group!  (Hint: it will probably be something with worms, compost sifters, or rain barrels)

NOTE: Shed assembling will be on the more physical side. Please inform a staff member if you have any physical constraints or injuries we should be aware of, and tasks will be delegated accordingly. No prior knowledge with construction is required (we are assembling, not carpentry-ing).

You are also welcome to bring a lunch and munch with us in our peaceful garden afterwards!
