Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

July 29, Cullman: Tomato Gleaning Volunteer Opportunity

I know this is short notice.  I think that is really kind of the way it works.  Please make sure to RSVP so I can let them know if we are going to have a group help or not.

I think this is a wonderful opportunity!  Our kids can learn about harvesting tomatoes, not wasting food, and helping those in need.  It is a win, win, win opportunity!

“Calling All Volunteers”
Society of St. Andrew is a nonprofit organization that recovers food from farms and gets it to agencies feeding the hungry. We are going to be picking tomatoes at the Cullman Research Station this coming Tuesday, July 29th and would love for you to join us. Bring gloves and water and dress for picking. Jim Moon will be the field supervisor and you need to sign a waiver of liability that can be found here:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B23S9hxfdToKU0xNOHhfN3BDaHc/edit?usp=sharing.

You can meet us at the North Alabama Horticulture Station at 8:15 am and the address is; 765 County Road 1466,  Cullman, AL  35056.  We may be returning on Friday, August 1st.

The contact at Society of St. Andrew told me that a gleaning usually lasts about two hours and all ages are welcome.

Please RSVP to Deb Spradlin at everestacademy1@gmail.com if you are attending and how many helpers you will have.
