Through a partnership with the Conservation Legacy AmeriCorps VISTA Program, Guidestone Colorado has been awarded and will host an AmeriCorps NCCC Team May 17 – June 2. Comprised of nine young adults between the ages of 18-24, the Team will be volunteering their labor to two community sites in Salida that Guidestone Colorado manages: the Salida School Gardens, Holman Ave. Site and the Hutchinson Homestead & Learning Center on Hwy. 50.
The Team will assist Guidestone Colorado in preparing those two sites for the coming season. At the Salida School Garden, Holman Ave. Site they will be assisting with planting produce, expanding the growing area, and assisting with the fruit tree orchard expansion. At the Hutchinson Homestead & Learning Center the Team will assist in preparing the grounds and conducting maintenance on the historic buildings in preparations for summer tours and Farmhands Education Programs offered through Guidestone Colorado.
Would you like to meet this amazing group of individuals who are serving our community? Join us May 30 from 10am-2pm for the Adopt a Fruit Tree Salida School Gardens Fundraiser!
