Beacon Food Forest Work Party June 2016 says
All ages and background welcome, no need to sign up in advance. Don't forget to bring your Dad's!

The weather is looking to be beautiful, please remember your sun screen and farm hats. Also recommended: work gloves, water bottle, $3-5 donation (not required) for lunch, and a coffee cup/utensil to reduce waste on the site. We believe in zero waste and exercise pack-it-in, pack-it-out. If you are able to, please arrive around 9:45am to enjoy morning refreshments and we'll get coordinated and start soon after 10am.

Volunteers will make coffee and serve a delicious vegan home-cooked lunch to be served around 12:30pm. Our work parties typically run until 2-3pm depending on turnout, weather, and energy levels. :)

We'll be working on some of these tasks as we welcome Summer to our site:
- Pathway making
- Weeding our Helix garden (this is our 'giving garden' where we grow free organic vegetables for neighbors and visitors)
- Trellis making
- Wetland Maintenance
- Lupin weeding teams
- Morning Glory weeding teams
- Harvest from our Helix Garden
- Compost chopping block making
- Composting work

Children are encouraged to come to the work parties- we'd love to have them help with our helix harvesting :)

This is a wonderful hands-on way to learn about preparing the garden through the Summer months.
See you on Sunday June 19th!
