HandsOn Bay Area presents Be the Change Day 2009, one of the largest days of volunteering in the Bay Area. Join 1,200+ volunteers and be the change you want to see in your community.
On Be the Change Day, volunteers will help in the maintenance of San Jose’s beautiful Heritage Rose Garden by weeding, mulching, pruning, and doing light repair of facilities. The garden is maintained by the Guadalupe River Park and Gardens, a community organization whose mission is to develop and maintain the garden and provide educational programs. Help preserve these rare plants for the benefit of the community.
