Location: Interactive Resource Center (IRC), 407 E Washington St, Greensboro, NC 27401 [ map ]

This work day is a unique joint effort through Guilford’s annual Day of Service! We can begin at 9am with students arriving at 9:45am and staying until 12:15pm. This is a chance to meet with college-aged students who may be interested in gardening and molding their eager minds! Tasks for the day include:

  1. Reconstructing herb spiral
  2. Planting perennial herbs back in spiral (based on availability, donations welcome)
  3. Deconstructing annual vegetable beds (harvest veggies and store in Share the Harvest fridge), spreading remaining soil, mulching, and relocating raised bed wood to parking lot beds
  4. Weeding and mulching around parking lot beds (may have additional cardboard for basic sheet-mulching)
  5. General site cleanup

Plant donations for the herb spiral and tree guilds would be amazing! Perennial herbs (rosemary, thyme, oregano, chives, lavender… ) and functional guild plants (bulbs, comfrey, borage, yarrow…) would be most appreciated.

There is a massive pile of mulch on the backside of the building and I will have trash bags for you all.

Please bring a shovel and others if you have them. There are two wheelbarrows on site. Robb, Charlotte, Kate, and Teri will be the site leaders for the day!
