United Way Day of Action at the Farm

Day of Action is a worldwide initiative of United Way that aims to promote and encourage volunteerism
and giving back within your local community. United Way of York County’s Day of Action is the largest
annual volunteer event held in York, which engages over 1,000 volunteers with the opportunity to
impact local agencies through acts of service.

The Horn Farm Center is proud to be a part of this incredible community effort this year! As we gear up for the 17th Annual Pawpaw Festival this September, we need some help beautifying the gardens and grounds at the Horn Farm. We invite you to get your hands dirty with a few projects on the farm:

  • Cleaning up our pollinator and native plant gardens – activities include weeding, digging, and spreading mulch.
  • Helping to maintain our newly planted riparian buffer – activities include weeding, digging, and spreading mulch.
  • Brightening up the grounds with a fresh coat of paint – activities include repairing and painting our white picket fence.

Be the change you wish to see in the world! Join us for the United Way Day of Action on Friday, August 27th.
