Lend a Hand During the National Day of Service

Have MLK Jr. Day off? How will you spend it?


Martin Luther King Jr. once said: "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?’”

To honor the civil rights leader’s memory, cities around the country are embarking on service projects on Monday, January 21.

In Petaluma, Petaluma Bounty Farm is inviting the public to lend a hand by beautifying and mulching farm pathways, weeding annual grasses, laying compost around fruit trees and painting signs from 10am to 2pm Monday.

Bring your friends and family - there are projects for everyone.

Petaluma Bounty Farm is located at 55 Shasta Ave (off Petaluma Boulevard North.) Please bring closed-toe shoes, warm clothes and lunch for yourself or something to share!

RSVP to Lennie Larkin at farm@petalumabounty.org or (707) 364-4883. Or, if you're the spur of the moment type, just show up!
