Project Description

Volunteers will help the South Lansing Urban Gardens (SLUG) by harvesting crops, weeding, clearing garden beds, planting seeds and transplants, and other tasks needed to prepare for the end of the growing season. 


All volunteers must register/check-in at the Spartan Days of Service kick-off event held in the Business College Complex, Room N130. 

All transportation will depart from the Business College Complex, and you must check in to find which bus is designated for your project. Upon completion of your service project, you will be dropped off at the Business College. Parking is available at the College of Law ramp, directly across from the Business College. 

Meals & T-Shirts 
During check-in and the program a light breakfast will be available to all volunteers. Prior to departure, volunteers can select a box lunch, and will receive a Spartan Days of Service t-shirt. Vegan and gluten free options will be available.
