1-Day Outdoor Service Project

This 1-day service event will take place here in Knoxville and is open to all UT students. We realize many of you are still local during Spring Break and we want to help you connect with the wider community and each other by making a much appreciated difference. To sign up, be sure to thoroughly read, fill out, and submit the waiver and then complete the form below.

We’ll concentrate on two places: Yoke Youth Ministries by doing mulching work in their flower beds and the Center for Urban Agriculture by helping them prep their gardens for planting.

Carpooling will be available from Advent House. Both destinations are within 15 minutes of UT. Gas cards will be given to those who drive and give others a ride.

Lunch and supper will be provided. All work supplies will be provided. If you have work gloves you love, bring those, and be sure to wear clothes you don’t mind messing up along with comfortable/sturdy shoes for working outside (mulching, raking, planting, and possibly more).

If you plan to join us for supper at Advent House (and we hope you do), know that you’ll have the option to shower (not a prerequisite for supper) and we’ll have an assortment of table/card games following supper.
