"Zomb-Weed" Hunting Service Project at UWO Fox Cities Community Garden

Thank you for volunteering for this "Spook-Tacular" community service project! Please review the available volunteer tasks below and click on the button to sign-up. You won't be stuck performing the same task the entire time just because you initially signed-up for it (unless you prefer to). We simply want to make sure we have ample coverage for the tasks we've identified as priorities.

Attention "Zomb-Weed" Hunters; if you're:

  • A Scout in need of Conservation Hours;
  • A community member looking to give back;
  • Craving Halloween candy but can’t Trick-or-Treat;
  • Or, too “ghoul“ to trick-or-treat...

This is an “Eerie-sistible” opportunity for you!

The UWO Fox Cities Community Garden at 1478 Midway Rd. Menasha, WI, has been overrun by monstrous ”Zomb-weeds” and the conditions are awfully Frightening! Many of the garden plots went fallow this year because most families couldn’t plant in the spring due to the shelter-in-place order. The Community Gardens are looking for brave volunteers to hunt these insidious “Zomb-Weeds” for a few hours on Saturday, 10/31/2020 (Halloween) to “Boo-tify” the Community Gardens.

In addition to exorcising the ”Zomb-weed” Horde, we will also be picking up litter, and (weather permitting) painting the ”crypt” (shed). This Service Opportunity will be held between 8:30 AM and 12:30 PM. There will be a check-in/check out station you’ll need to use to get credit for your Scouting or University program. Ending at noon should give volunteers with afternoon/evening Halloween events the ability to hunt “Zomb-Weeds” without interfering with their haunts later in the day.

Please Don’t Forget to Bring these Supplies:

  • Face Masks are required;
  • Work gloves for this “undertaking”;
  • A labeled water bottle so you don’t dry up like a mummy!!!

Costumes (which can be worn safely and comfortably while working) are not required but all the “ghoul kids” will be doing it! Have fun with this but please...keep it family-friendly, thanks!

There will be zero tricks and lots of treats!  

There are also volunteer slots for assembling treat bags prior to the event.

Please Note: If you sign-up to rototill the plots: You must be 18 years old or older; you must wear hearing protection; you must wear eye protection; and if you bring children under the age of ten with you, there must be another trusted adult to watch them while you're tilling. 

Thank you for being such a"ghoul" volunteer and
Community Gardens!
