Garden Pool is proud to announce that a food forest is finally coming to Phoenix! This is the biggest GP Volunteer Project yet, and we can use all the hands we can get to help make this a reality. Please spread the word and invite everyone!
We will get started early in the morning and a yummy breakfast and lunch will be served to all of the volunteers, but you are welcome to show up at any time to help.
In this project we will be planting an amazing selection of fruit trees that food foragers can access. It is a true food forest in Phoenix! There is a tilapia pond that is already dug and needs lined. There is also an amazing GP greenhouse already built that needs shaded and plumbed and a chicken coop that needs to be extended.
Bring your swim attire and feel free to swim in the gigantic pool!
We could use volunteers to help build and also tools for the volunteers.
Here is an infographic for this project: http://gardenpool.org/?attachment_id=3651
