Volunteer Workday @ Meadowbrook: Filling Jugs for Grow One Keep One

March 22 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm CDT

Come help us make 2024’s Grow One Keep One program the biggest success yet! The propagation of native flora remains a cornerstone of our stewardship mission.On March 22, you can help us fill our donated milk jugs with soil and seeds! Take two (or more) planted native seeds home with you and nurture the seedlings over time. Bring one (or more) back in June to be planted here at Meadowbrook in the fall!
Stewardship Director Eric Bird helps young volunteers fill their milk jugs with soil at an event during last year’s GOKO program.

Although the jug-filling will not likely take more than a few hours, you can come by throughout the day to pick up your jugs. We may be working both indoors and outside, so make sure to keep an eye on the weather forecast for the morning and dress accordingly, just in case. We’ll provide any necessary tools or gear, light snacks, and water. As always, we encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle!

So that we can best plan for this event, please RSVP through the website form below. Question? Call the office at 219-242-8558 or email

Please fill out the online Volunteer Application prior to attending. We will also have hard copies for you at this volunteer event. Stop by to lend a hand and chat with our staff about other opportunities that will engage your skills and pique your interests!
