January 20 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm PST

On January 20th from 9 am-3 pm HUG will honor MLK’s vision of a Beloved Community. “The core value of the quest for Dr. King’s Beloved Community was agape love… love seeking to preserve and create community.”***Building on MLK’s vision of nonviolent actions for radical change, we’ll focus our day’s work connecting with neighbors by doing a variety of activities – starting seeds for HUG and local farmers, transplanting strawberries, making medicines with our friends at Canoe Journey Herbalists, spreading wood chips, creating art, and more! This is a multi-generational event and very family-friendly. There will be indoor activities in case of stormy weather.Mobilizing the support offered to us each year, this will be a great day of action honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and helping HUG grow for the neighborhood!
