Each fall semester since 2014, Roosevelt University students in SUST 350 Service & Sustainability have volunteered hundreds of hours working at the remarkable Eden Place Nature Center and Farm in the Fuller Park community on Chicago’s South Side. Each October, Eden Place hosts a Saturday pumpkin festival open to one and all.
If anyone in the RU community or beyond is looking for volunteer opportunities, please call Mr. Troy Howard at 773-624-8686 and let him know you’re interested in helping out. Or, just show up between 11am and 4pm to volunteer on the spot, or simply to have a good time outdoors in “urban nature,” Chicago-style!
