Countryside Conservancy

Peninsula, Ohio - Volunteers are needed June 22nd, 23rd, and 24th to help out with the Tenth Annual Summer Solstice Wine, Art, & Music Festival at Sarah's Vineyard (1204 W. Steels Corners Road, Cuyahoga Falls). If you are interested in being part of an exciting event showcasing Great Ohio Wines, Delicious Local Foods, Local Artisans, and Musicians - this volunteer experience is for you!

Individuals are needed to sell tickets for wine sampling. This is a wonderful volunteer opportunity for couples and friends to share, and then relax for some sampling from twelve different Ohio wineries and vineyards. Volunteers will receive free admission to the festival (on your volunteer day) and a complementary Sarah's Vineyard signature wine glass.

The following shifts are available:
Friday, June 22, 3-7pm or 7-10:30pm
Saturday, June 23, 11am-3pm, 3-7pm, or 7-10:30pm
Sunday,June 24, 11am-1:30pm, 1:30-3pm, or 3-6:30pm

The success of the Countryside Conservancy relies on a team of dedicated staff and volunteers. As our organization grows, so does our need for volunteers. Serving on our Farmers' Market Volunteer Team, or as a volunteer for one of our special events is a great way to get involved in and learn more about farmers' markets, sustainable agriculture and the local food movement across Northeast Ohio.

Please contact Julie Gabelman at 330.657.2542, or by email at jgabelman@cvcountryside.org to find out more about this opportunity. Visit our website at www.cvcountryside.org for information on other volunteer opportunities.

Please Note: Volunteers for this event must be 21 years of age or older.
