November, you’ve shown yourself to be a month full of the unexpected. We hope that this week, the week of Thanksgiving, you and yours are able to find some peace and respite over a shared meal. It feels more important than ever to voice the things we are grateful for. For us at The HEAL Project, we’re thankful for our community of supporters that allow us to continue to do the work we do educating the next generation about health and the environment and the ever-giving, bountiful earth.
There’s Black Friday. There’s Cyber Monday. And then there’s #GivingTuesday, an international day of giving focused on raising funds for nonprofits across the globe. Help The HEAL Project kick off the season of giving on #GivingTuesday by dining out at one of the five participating coastside restaurants on November 29th. A portion of all proceeds from the day will be donated to The HEAL Project to support garden based education programs on the Coastside and beyond. Join the #GivingTuesday movement on Tuesday, November 29th!
E-waste drop off & Farm Friday
Our final Farm Friday of the year is coming up on December 16th. Farm Fridays are a weekly volunteer day open to any and all who would like to come lend a hand on the farm. We’re open to the public from 9am to 4pm, no need to RSVP, just come by and say hello! More details can be found on our website or by following this link: http://thehealproject.org/farm_fridays
Saturday, December 3rd is our last E-waste collection day of the year. You know that old, broken desktop computer monitor that’s sitting in your garage collecting dust? Bring it by the Half Moon Bay Farmers’ Market on Saturday from 9am-1pm and we’ll recycle it. We can accept any electronics with the exception of large appliances.
With the support of Kaiser Permanente, The HEAL Project has increased understanding of health and nutrition and provided hands on opportunities to plant, harvest and prepare farm fresh snacks to nearly 2,000 students from South San Francisco schools over the past 3 years. We’re grateful to be able to partner with organizations who are as committed to improving opportunities for healthy eating and active living to vulnerable populations as we are.
