Volunteer Day

Come on out Saturday, June 14th from 9AM-12PM to help the Montessori School at Emory (Actually, on North Decatur Rd.) begin to mitigate some erosion, rebuild topsoil, and capture water in their playground. We will be learning to use an A-frame level to map contour, digging some shallow contour swales, and planting a ground cover layer as first steps to a permaculture landscape at this wonderful school!
