In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we are excited to invite you to join us for, Joint Effort, a special Day of Service. For Joint Effort, we are harnessing the power of green thumbs and the spirit of the cannabis community to support those in need. We believe in the transformative power of nature and the generosity of the human spirit. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of the homeless in the Phoenix region.
SATURDAY, jANUARY 13, 2024
Start the 3-day weekend by serving your community. From 9:00a-11:30a, meet us at the Rob and Melani Walton Urban Farm, located on 420 W. Watkins Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85002.
DRESS CODE: Please dress appropriately for the Arizona sun and heat! Although it’s counterintuitive, long sleeves and pants will keep you cooler as well as protect you from ants, zucchini and tomato oil which tend to irritate the skin. A hat, sunscreen and refillable water bottle or camelback are highly recommended.
sERVE YOUR cOMMUNITY
Whether you are an experienced green thumb or just starting out, everyone is welcome to join us at the urban farm! While volunteering at the farm, activities will include:
Help plant new seeds
Harvest fresh fruits & veggies
Warm Clothes Donation Drive
This greatly enhances the nutritional support the farm is able to provide guests, and provides programming activities to inspire, educate, and offer a sacred space of peace and belonging.
We are collaborating with 2 local non-profit organizations to provide a monumental wave of support. Hence the name, Joint Effort.
Tom’s Palms, will be welcoming and encouraging a warm clothes drop off for those in need this winter. Needed items: Blankets, jackets, pants, beanies, hats, etc. Anything to help our community stay warm during the winter months.
The Rob And Melani Walton Urban Farm offers many services including community farm serving food to the homeless , with over 32,000lbs of produce harvested, and over 7,200 volunteer hours served. Join us!
