Humanitarian Garden Project
October 23, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm PDT
Join us at Elings Park South to help build the new Bucket Brigade Humanitarian Garden!
We will be clearing a new garden area, removing invasive plants, planting native seeds and seedlings and then laying down mulch to build soil, suppress weeds and retain moisture. This will be a great opportunity to help us transform a damaged ecosystem in Elings Park into an organic humanitarian garden and native plant habitat restoration area.
We will be providing lunch at 12:30PM so hang out and break bread with the Brigade after the garden project!
Volunteers will meet at the Parking Lot for Elings Downhill Course for a garden tour, safety briefing and coffee and doughnut session to adjust caffeine and sugar levels before we head out into the garden.
WHAT TO BRING?
Please wear long pants, long sleeve shirt, a hat and sturdy closed-toe shoes.
If you have gloves – please bring those too. If not, we will provide you with a pair.
Please bring a reusable water bottle to help us protect the environment as we stay hydrated.
This project will involve moderate exercise and we will be using rakes, hoes, wheelbarrows and pitchforks. We will take brakes to stretch and to take in the beautiful ocean views.
