Summer Sundays are perfect for afternoon beer drinking. What could make that better than drinking some beer for a good cause? Check out the info from awesome person extraordinaire Katie Ries. Support this innovative and purposeful project!
I’m writing to let you know about a project I’m working to make happen at CAC Beardsley Community Farm: Urban Land Scout Summer Camp. That’s right– Urban Land Scout Camp! We hope to open our doors this July to sixty campers (grades 5th – 7th) over three sessions.Â We’ll do farm chores, eat together, make things, and work on earning Urban Land Scout badges. Best of all, we hope to offer the camp at no cost to our campers and their families. The Tomato Head and Cruze Dairy Farm have generously stepped up to cover our meals, and several local individuals have already contributed to the camp. Now we’re hoping you’ll join us.
We will be gathering this Sunday, from 6-9 pm, at the Birdhouse (800 N. 4th Ave.) to drink nice beer (from the Downtown Grill and Brewery), eat snacks, meet each other, and talk about the project (or whatever you feel like discussing on a Sunday evening with a beer in hand). We’re asking for a donation of $5-10 and an hour or so of your time so we can tell you more about the project. We hope you can join us. If you can’t make it to the event, but would still like to support the project, you can make a tax-deductible donation to our sponsoring non-profit, Schools of Influence Education Foundation, here:
Lastly, if you know a young person rising into grades 5th – 7th (or the parents of one) who attends any of the Knox County schools listed below and who might be interested in Urban Land Scout Camp, please send them our way. Or download this application and hand it to them.
