MLK DAY CELEBRATION! January 17, 2022
Hello Friends of Grand Meadow Park,
Happy New Year! We hope that you all had a safe and fun holiday. Last year, we achieved a lot on the backend. In 2022, our goal is to plan many more community activity events, put our newly a acquired mini grant to good use, and break ground!
So we thought, what better way to kick off 2022 than by honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Please join us as we work together in Grand Meadow Park to build a compost pile. This will be our community compost bin where we can collect materials from home and local businesses to build quality, living soil! Afterwards, we’ll celebrate a job well done at my house for a BBQ!
3:30 pm- Meet at Grand Meadow Neighborhood Park, in front of the “KB Homes Sign” on Thaxton Rd.
3:30 pm - 4:30 pm: Get to know your neighbors as we build a temporary compost bin! We’ll put pallets together and use this space for a communal compost pile.
4:30 pm - Wrap up
5:00 pm - Head over to Ivana’s house for a BBQ potluck!
WHAT TO BRING:
COMPOST ACTIVITY: Please bring: bags of leaves, kitchen scraps, coffee grounds, and other items you may have to compost. Gloves and sturdy closed-toe shoes are recommended. We have some gloves to lend out.
BBQ POTLUCK: Please bring a side dish or something to BBQ. You can email back or post to the facebook invite what you will bring so we can plan accordingly.
We look forward to celebrating the life of MLK by beginning our journey of nourishing our community from the soil up!
*Since we are in Stage 5, we will be wearing masks during our community activity.*
