Join Vox Culture and volunteer for the Martin Bailey Garden Project at Margaret Long Wisdom High School! In partnership with the Rotary E-Club of Houston, we are developing a creative garden model that addresses the needs of Wisdom HS. 
Volunteers Needed: Stage 1 begins on Saturday, November 17, 2018 at 9 AM – 1 PM CST
WHERE: Margaret Long Wisdom High School
6529 Beverlyhill St, Houston, Texas 77057

Building a garden requires a strong group effort to make a difference! Therefore, we need your time and talent to make it happen. Volunteers will mainly be planting seeds and seedlings in the raised beds, but no experience is necessary, since there will be instructions provided on-site. Some gardening tools will be available but priority will be given to the students of the school. If you have your own tools, we recommend you bring them!

WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING & WEAR: Garden gloves, jeans or comfortable clothing you do not mind getting dirty in, hat and/or sunglasses, close toed shoes.

FOOD: Snacks will be served to all volunteers.

REGISTRATION/INQUIRIES: If you would like to volunteer - or if you cannot volunteer but wish to support the Martin Bailey Garden Project - please contact Vox Volunteer Coordinator, Nicole Kwan, at with your full name, phone #, and email. Please also let us know if you are coming by yourself, as a couple, or with a group. 

ABOUT THE MARTIN BAILEY GARDEN PROJECT: This eco-garden is a green space that will produce resources for students, including food and educational opportunities. It aims to develop a modern concept of an integrated urban garden that encourages sustainability, education, and healthy food options including vegetables, fruits, and herbs. The garden will also benefit educators by enhancing curriculum and live education options, with state of the art green technology features and more. Furthermore, professional artists will collaborate with Wisdom HS students to design garden beautification projects with murals being part of the first stage of development.

IN MEMORIAM: The garden is dedicated in the memory of Mr. Martin Bailey. Mr. Bailey was a alumni of the first graduating class of Wisdom HS and remained a highly active alumni board member who continuously advocated and strived for the embetterment of the students at Wisdom High School.

Thank you; we can’t wait to see you around the garden!
