Family-friendly fun at Huss Future Fest!

The Huss Project is all about a big IDEA: imagination! We seek to grow our community’s ability to dream big! But just as important, the Huss Project is a PLACE and we need your presence this summer as a volunteer partner in this good work.

Our big projects this summer include the Huss Project Farm, the summer lunch program, and Huss Future Festival on July 21. There are so many great opportunities to contribute—how will you choose?

  • Do you love digging your hands in the dirt or are you passionate about making sure all people have access to healthy food? Consider helping with the garden!
  • Do you love working with kids or being creative? Consider helping out once a week with summer lunches or taking on a fun role with Huss Future Fest, like working in the art tent.
  • Do you love organizing stuff or stepping back after a job-well-done to take in results you can see? Consider helping with the rummage sale or community work days leading up to Huss Future Fest.

What we’re saying is: there’s something for everyone! More details are below, and please do get in touch if you can help and we’ll connect you to the right person.
