Why are we serving here?

One of the ways ForColumbia strives to love and serve our city is by giving our time and energy to beautify community areas that are available to everyone to enjoy. At this location we have the privilege of partnering with Parks & Recreation and the Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture to help complete the work being done at this new community park. When we give our time like this, we are actively seeking the good of our city in a tangible way.

What can I expect?

ForColumbia volunteers will be working in this park to:

  • plant a large stormwater basin water garden, as well as other garden areas.

  • Come prepared to work outside; if sunny, we encourage you to consider bringing sunscreen and/or a hat.
  • We encourage all volunteers to wear close-toed shoes.

Can I serve here with my children?

Yes, older kids can help serve at this site. Because this park is located at the crossroads of two high-traffic streets, we do not recommend bringing children younger than 7 to this site.
