Heal the Earth Garden Party & Swap Meet
On Saturday, June 15, from 10 a.m. to noon, come kick off our summer of intergenerational fun with eco-friendly service projects!
We have four projects to help bring healing to our beautiful planet Earth. You can participate in any or all of them, or just serve as a friendly “sidewalk superintendent.”
- Creating a pollinator-friendly garden behind the church
- Creating an “indoor garden”–a paper mural for the Gathering Room
- Creating stenciled reusable shopping bags
- An eco-friendly garden-themed swap meet–a chance to re-use good stuff
We’ll provide hearty snacks and lemonade. The event will go on RAIN OR SHINE! We’re hoping for beautiful weather, but everything except for planting the pollinator garden can be moved indoors if necessary.
Invite your friends! You can copy and send them this link: http://evite.me/nhE6kmuARd
Guidelines for the swap meet
Please bring only items that are lawn and garden-related and in good condition (garden hoses, decorative pots, tools for planting/weeding/harvesting, a treasured garden gnome, maybe even some patio furniture).
You can bring plants of any kind; ones that are good for pollinators may be used in creating the new back-of-church pollinator garden.
NO CHEMICALS, please.
Children’s outdoor toys and play furniture would be great. Ask your kids, grandkids or great-grandkids to help you find some things to bring. They can enjoy swapping old toys for something new.
Drop items off at the church during the week before the June 15 event (but bringing them the day of the event is okay).
We’ll be posting signs about this in the neighborhood – anyone is welcome to participate. Invite your friends.
No money will be exchanged. Bring things you no longer want. Take things you can make use of. Anything left after 12 p.m. will be donated.
