Corn Picking! 40,000 ears! It should be ready to pick by July 8 . Bring your friends and family! (Be sure to sign them up so we know how many are coming.) The corn is then sold at that Uplift Garden and all proceeds go directly to Uplift.
Please be aware that corn stalks may be sharp or prickly so be sure and wear long pants and close toed shoes (no sandals or flip flops). You will want to wear a light long sleeve shirt if you want and a hat! Bring your water bottle, gloves and a bucket or cloth bag that you will carry with you to put your corn in.
If by chance it is raining either day, watch this website for updates.
Uplift (http://www.uplift.org/)is a homeless outreach program run entirely by volunteers since 1990. They deliver meals three times a week to around 300 people along with clothing and other necessities.
Serve KC volunteers will help work on the garden in Belton that provides food for the homeless. We’ll be putting paper down, pulling weeds and repainting the sign for the garden. Please bring garden gloves, bug spray and bottled water.
All ages welcome with adult supervision for those under 18.
Directions To The Uplift Garden: Take US-71 S / I-49 S to the Belton/Raymore MO-58 E highway exit. Go east on MO-58 to Kentucky Rd., then take a left to head North. You’ll pass a red barn and the garden is on your right. Please do not park in the driveway(s)s of the next door home(s). Feel free to park on the street in front of the garden or grass areas next to the garden.
