On Sunday, July 22 from 10am – 2pm, Go Green Winnetka is hosting its inaugural Yards That Work tour, a bike and carpooling tour of six yards in Winnetka that incorporate sustainability in different ways – rain gardens, shade gardens, stormwater detention, bioswales, permeable pavers, vegetable gardens and fruit trees, composting, no pesticides, etc.
We are looking for two types of volunteers for this event:
- in the week or so before the event, we might need help making signs to identify sustainable/native plants and features in each yard.
- on the day of the event, we would like one volunteer in each yard to act as a Go Green Winnetka representative to assist the yard host, help guests/tour participants, etc.
Thank you for your interest!
Opportunities Available: Sunday Afternoons, Mornings
