Volunteers Needed for RecycleMania
The Environmental Center is looking for volunteers
to help plan, organize and execute the 2014 RecycleMania recycling competition.
RecycleMania is a intercollegiate competition between universities nationwide.
The Environmental Center is organizing a number of events to help reduce the
amount of trash sent to landfills by UNF and to educate the UNF community about
waste reduction. Please contact James Taylor for more
interested in organic gardening? Come join the team and help build, cultivate
and maintain our beautiful garden. Adopt your own garden bed and feel the
thrill of accomplishment and satisfaction as you watch your work turn into
healthy foods you can eat. During volunteer hours, UNF students from all over
campus come together to work in the dirt, build planters and other structures,
till, weed and water the rows and hang out with nature.
hours are Tuesdays and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Volunteers should
dress appropriately, wear something you won't mind getting dirty and sturdy
shoes or boots. We can supply gloves, or you can bring your own if you prefer.
The UNF Ogier Gardens can be found next to the Skate Park and Lot 18.
