TMS 2009: Meeting News


Help Make a Difference in the Lives of Bay Area Families...
TMS Seeks Volunteers for Hands On Bay Area Project
Posted January 8, 2009

Hands On LogoTMS is still in need of volunteers to help make the Hands On Bay Area community service project a success. Like last year in New Orleans, members and guests are encouraged to roll up their sleeves and donate their time to help less fortunate families live better lives.

Participation in the project is free and includes transportation to the project site, an on-site lunch, and an afternoon reception. It is sponsored by the TMS Foundation. To register, indicate your attendance on the TMS 2009 Annual Meeting registration form. If you have already registered for the Annual Meeting and did not indicate your attendance to the project, e-mail Margie Castello at

Volunteers will work together on Saturday, February 14, to build raised garden beds, plant seedlings, weed or turn compost bins, and lay wood chips along the paths, among other duties at Alemany Farm during the project. The organic garden will serve as a way to improve and expand sustainable agricultural practices in the Bay Area and will be used as a tool to teach the community about water conservation, composting, permaculture, and other environmental topics.

In addition, an in depth story can be found in the January issue of JOM.
