Pepperdine's 25th Annual International Day of Community Service! Step Forward Day is celebrating 25 years of uniting the Pepperdine community for an international day of community service! SFD is a simple yet profound way for Waves to make a difference and live out the mission of Pepperdine. Join hundreds of alumni and students across the globe by serving on September 7, 2013. One in six Americans experience hunger in their lifetime. The Seattle Waves are joining forces with the Giving Garden to positively impact the local community by providing healthy food for people in need. Marra Farm relies on volunteers to plant, weed and harvest over 20,000 pounds of produce each year for local food banks. Please join us as we Step Forward in the fight against hunger. Skills are not required, just a heart to serve. All ages are welcome. There is no charge to participate, but registration is required. What kinds of tasks will I be doing? Tending and maintaining Lettuce Link’s Giving Garden is a great way to make a difference! Get your hands dirty while working outdoors in the fresh air. Tasks vary based on the season, but you may help prepare soil and garden beds, mix compost, plant vegetable starts and seeds, weed, harvest and/or wash produce. Through hands on work and conversation, you will learn about the source of your food, food security, organic farming and food justice. What to Bring: Don’t forget your lunch, snacks and a water bottle! Tools and gloves will be provided. Attire: Dress in layers, wearing weather-appropriate clothing (raingear, hat, etc.) and sturdy shoes that can get muddy. Long sleeves and pants can protect you from the sun and prickly plants. Transportation & Parking: The farm is located in the South Park neighborhood, and accessible by Metro routes #60 and #132. Street parking is available.
