CHANGED TO JUNE 9TH SATURDAY WITH SAME TIME DUE TO RAIN/COLD. THANK YOU. We are on for May 19th, from 9am to 12pm, with Winter Cache. For those who want to carpool, you can meet at the People's Free Space (144 Cumberland Ave) at 8:30am. Directions are pasted below. We recommend that people bring lawn chairs or picnic blankets, as we will not have access to any inside facilities. Winter Cache will gather the basic materials (manure, seaweed, straw, newspaper), but it would be great for anyone to bring what they have (coffee grounds, food scraps, etc). As far as the area to cover, we figure we can just do what we can with the materials and time we have. Any opinions or suggestions on initial plantings for "newly sheet mulched areas" would be appreciated by Winter Cache. The woods nearby are the only "facilities" available so please take prior measures! We will follow the morning's work with a relaxing potluck lunch!! Suggested potluck breakdown: Last name starting with A-G main or side dish to share Last name starting with H-M bring salad or veg or dessert Last name starting with N-S bring whatever you want Last name starting with T-Z bring bread or beverage Look forward to seeing you all there and working with another local sustainable organization!
