Have a Hart Day

It’s that time again – International Have a Hart Day – Jacksonville, Florida

The last Have a Hart Day was so much fun, we are doing it again. Remember this is not a one-time event, or even an annual holiday that has to happen on a specific Tuesday in June after a new moon, but rather a pop-up show for volunteers who want to shine. A day of fun and good works at Celestial Farms! Volunteers will be doing animal welfare projects or gardening. We can find something useful for everyone to do! All are required to take a few minutes to read our volunteer handbook and sign a waiver. You do not have to stay the whole time, but please consider at least a 3hr minimum commitment. Please register through VolunteerMatch.org, or send us a simple RSVP e-mail with your name, volunteer history, and any questions you might have about the farm: volunteer@celestialfarms.org

International Have a Hart Day – a movement started by Hannah Hart Check out the official Facebook page here.

Have a Hart Day is like any other volunteer work day in a few ways – Volunteers must be over the age of 16 if they are not to be attended by a parent or guardian. Sturdy but light clothes should be worn, as this is a farm, you will be working in the heat of the day, and you will be getting dirty! We suggest boots (rubber rain boots work great, work boots are good too if there is no mud) or sneakers you don’t mind getting dirty, khakis or jeans (shorts are fine if you’re comfortable in them, but mind that there is dirt/bugs/stinging nettle on this farm, and it might be your job to work with them!), t-shirt, sweatshirt of it’s going to be cool, a hat or bandanna, sun screen, and bug spray. We will provide bottled water, lemonade, and snacks, but feel free to bring your own! Please note that no drugs, alcohol, or smoking permitted on premises (there is a smoking area in the parking field). THIS IS A RAIN OR SHINE EVENT. We have an indoor area to meet and work on small projects on. Please bring a raincoat or umbrella if it threatens to rain (it is Florida, it can always rain).

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A WORKING FARM.

There are animals, dirt, and some smells. We try to keep the smells to a minimum with rigorous sanitation and cleaning, but the dirt and animals are part of the whole ‘farm’ thing. You do not have to be around any animals you are uncomfortable with, as all are in enclosures (except for some free roaming chickens and 2 farm cats).
