Ag Day is an annual tradition held by the University of Delaware’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. This year, on April 27th from 10 am to 4 pm, people will be visiting from all over the area to experience agriculture and the natural world through hands on education exhibitors, live demonstrations, as well as great food and music. Oh, and let’s not forget about that amazing ice cream from the UDairy Creamery!
Ag Day is an amazing experience, but with a crowd of over 5000 people, Ag Day would not be able to operate without the help of volunteers! Volunteers will work for periods of 2 hours and 10 minutes over the course of the day (from 8 am to roughly 6 pm).
Here is the breakdown of the volunteer time slots:
10 am -12:10 pm
4-6(ish) pm -clean up- Anyone who stays for the cleanup shift will receive FREE PIZZA!!
This is a great way to earn some of those community service hours you may need! Plus, all volunteers receive a FREE colorful volunteer t-shirt, and when your shift is over, we encourage you to go explore the rest of Ag Day!
Can’t make it on that Saturday but still want to be a part of this amazing experience? Have no fear! There is also a shift on Friday April 26th from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm to help with setup.
Please remember, Ag Day is not successful without the help of volunteers! It’s you that makes Ag Day so special! So we encourage you to come on out and help us make Ag Day the best it can be!
If you are interested in helping out, please contact the Ag Day team at AgDay2013Volunteers@gmail.com with any time conflicts, and we will sign you up for a shift. Please respond by April 23rd.
If you are an Ag Ambassador, part of UDET or apart of any other special club, please let us know as well.
Hope to see you at Ag Day!
