Host ELC's Table at Edgebrook's Farmers Market

ELC will host the non-profit table at the Edgebrook Farmers’ Market onSaturday, July 28 (9am - 1 pm). We’re looking for volunteers to host for an hour at a time (especially the 11am-1pm shift). All materials are provided, including ELC brochures, event information and crafts and treats for kids. All ages are welcome! This is a great chance to be out and about and to introduce ELC to and reconnect with all of our neighbors, so sign up with or bring a friend!

No experience or skills required – other than a smiling face‼! Buying your veggies, flowers, breakfast and other treats while “working” is encouraged‼ Have you been looking to help out, but need something quick and easy? This is your chance! Can’t commit? Come by whenever you are able. The Farmers’ Market takes place in the Edgebrook School parking lot (Hiawatha, east of Central – street parking available).
