Teamwork Opportunity: Whetstone Brook Cleanup

Brattleboro Food Co-op 2 Main Street, Brattleboro, VT, United States

Come for 2 hours to earn your shareholder discount… or stay longer if you’re having too much fun! The Whetstone Brook runs right through our land, and in conjunction with the Connecticut River Conservancy, Caz and Lisa are leading a cleanup. This is a great opportunity to get outdoors in a beautiful spot while earning shareholder hours! Please bring wellingtons or waders if you have them, and also know that we have waders to borrow and plenty of non-wet jobs, too! Work gloves are provided for kids and adults alike. Meet at the far end of the parking lot where it turns to dirt, and we'll show you the mini-paradise that lies beyond. We can’t wait to collaborate on this!
