Mulching volunteers

MLK Day of Service Mulching

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., you're invited to give back to MLK Memorial Gardens! Volunteers are needed to assist with mulching to help beautify the park on Wednesday, January 15 from 9 a.m. to noon. Mulching plays an important role in well-landscaped areas as it controls weed growth, provides moisture for plants, and an overall positive aesthetic look to the park!

Volunteer Duties: Volunteers will spread mulch around the landscaped areas. Volunteers will work in teams to help fill wheelbarrows, run wheelbarrows and dump mulch in identified landscape beds, and rake mulch.

Volunteer Requirements: Volunteers must register at the link below to participate. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old to volunteer. All volunteers will need to sign volunteer release forms. Volunteers under the age of 18 years old will need to have a parent/guardian signature.
