Henderson Park Beautify and Cleanup!

On June 7th, it is National Trails Day, so we are celebrating by keeping one of our local parks beautiful! We will assist in improving Henderson Park by removing invasive species (e.g., kudzu, English Ivy) and planting native species that will thrive in the Georgia climate and beautify the park’s walking trails.

We will meet at Henderson Park (2803 Henderson Rd., Tucker, GA) at 9am. We will beautify until 12pm, and then go out for lunch if anyone is up for it. Some of us are also planning to attend the Color Festival afterwards; see the meetup event! This is a family-friendly event, so bring everyone you got! You should also consider bringing a shady hat, sunscreen, water to drink, clothes that could get dirty and and close-toed shoes.

This is part of a Sunday Assembly National Day of Action. Many other SAs around the world will also be partaking in similar community service on June 7th. Be a part of history and make an immediate impact on your local park with us!


ONE QUICK BUT IMPORTANT NOTE: If you bring a dog, she must be on a leash at ALL times and feces must be cleaned up no matter where your dog "does her business", e.g., even if your dog "goes" off the trail, the feces must be bagged and thrown away in a trash can. This is for the sake of a clean, beautiful park and responsibility for making sure everyone can enjoy the park, no matter the species!

See you soon!

    Y'all are the best volunteer group ever! Clearing out the invasives and restoring the native areas will be a years long effort of, to borrow Zoltan's phrase, hard sweaty work. I went back to water in the newly planted natives that evening and several folks walking the trail commented on the major dent we made on Saturday. Does anyone have any pictures they can share?

    Remember to bring your sunscreen! Maybe a hat, too!

    Just to confirm or reiterate, we are meeting at the West side of the park, off Henderson Rd, and not the East side off Livesy Rd., correct? I wanted to make sure for myself, but also in case others might have assumed off Livesey Rd., as that is where I would have gone had I not checked this more carefully.

      From Joan's earlier comment, it will be the lot off Henderson Rd.

    • Lori L.

      Yes Jason, the lot off of Henderson Rd. But there's a parking fee at that lot just for you. Just because! (ha ha).

    I will bring some extra cold drinks to share. I will not be wearing the suit seen in my picture.

    There are three parking lots off Henderson Rd for this park. We are meeting in the one next to the community garden. As Lori said, you may park in the soccer field lots if the community garden lot is full:)
    If you get there late just wander the paved native garden trail and you will be sure to find us.

    Reminder: it's recommended that you wear long-sleeves and long pants on Saturday morning. Also, if you have gloves or gardening tools (whether trowels or lopping shears), bring those as well.

    June 5, 2014

  • Lori L.

    Work gloves, shovel, hand trowel, or other weeding tools are handy if you have them. I'll bring extras. If the garden parking lot is full park next door at the soccer fields lot.

    I want to let you know that two of the three people I'll be bringing along are my young daughters (almost 6-yrs, 4-yrs). They'll gladly do what they can. I appreciate the opportunity to have them involved in volunteer work in the community.

      Kids can really help pulling up ivy and they'll love planting too. We'll do a poison ivy lesson before we start. :D

      Thanks! They're both allergic and *should* know what it looks like but a refresher never hurts.

    I'll be there! Plenty of invasives for everyone:)
