Volunteers are needed for a multitude of tasks at the next Ohlone Elementary School Farm Workday on November 13, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Farm tasks are available for all ages and skill levels.
Bring the whole family out as there are even activities for kids! Ohlone Elementary School requests that each family at its school work at least one workday per school year. Classmates can even sign up to volunteer together on the same workday. Workday tasks could be anything from gardening, to fixing items, or any other needed farm maintenance. It’s a great way to spend some quality time with your family and help out the school at the same time.
