Join the Work Party — Saturday, June 25th 9am-2pm & Sunday, June 26th, 9am-3pm
on Madison Ave. in Culver City (please RSVP email@example.com for address)
Come help convert a local lawn into a sustainable garden, with food, music & lots of community spirit. The Transition Culver City Grass-UP-Roots Campaign is a pay-it-forward work party (with emphasis on the party!) where two Culver City homes are being awarded the “treatment” of experienced on-site lawn conversion guidance and support plus access to materials in order to transform their front lawns into drought tolerant food gardens.
On Saturday, June 25th, we will gather materials for our first lawn conversion and prep the site for the next workday. On Sunday, we will sheet-mulch and plant.
Volunteers are a key element of the project. Participants will learn first hand how to transform a lawn to a water-conserving space for natives, vegetables and other plants suitable for a Mediterranean climate. Bring gloves, sunscreen & your garden tools or use tools provided. Part of the fun is a group meal provided by the host for all the volunteers.
The Grass-up-Roots campaign offers an opportunity to build community in your neighborhood, make new friends and have fun while tackling a large project. Picture old-fashioned barn-raising—conquering inertia for change through camaraderie and skillful goodwill. Fill out the volunteer form here.
