    Join us on Saturday, April 22nd for an Earth Day Fun Volunteer Opportunity. We’re going to play outside in the soil, meet new friends, get some exercise, do good things for the Earth and clean up our garden to make way for the 2017 growing season! This will be a hands-on, burn some calories, get outside, dirty hands, smell the fresh air, feel good, clean up the Earth event. If you like to wear work gloves we recommend you bring your favorite pair. The work party will begin at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 22nd. Everyone is invited to participate!

    This event is also an Earth Day Motorcycle Run! A big thank you to volunteer Susie If you want to participate in the Run the ride leaves the Kwik Trip Gas Station on Hwy 164 and I43 in Big Bend at 1:00 pm and meets at Michael Fields Agricultural Institute at 2:00 p.m.
