  • Volunteer: Greenway Tallow Weeding

    Thursday, December 20, 2018 at 09:00 AM
    Sojourner Truth Neighborhood Center in New Orleans, LA

     

    Join Friends of Lafitte Greenway and volunteers from the Greater New Orleans Iris Society as we have a massive Iris planting and bioswale clean-up day! We'll be planting about 1,000 irises on the rain gardens on N Galvez and N Carollton and pulling invasive Tallow trees in the bioswales between N Galvez and N Broad to ensure they don't take over the Greenway's biggest stormwater management feature. Come out and contribute to making our Greenway thrive! 

    WHAT TO WEAR:Close-toed shoes or boots and weather appropriate clothes you don't mind getting dirty.

    WHAT TO BRING: A water bottle, and a friend!

    "Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve.... You don't have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." -Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Join us for an MLK Day of Service on the Greenway! We'll be keeping the Greenway clean, green, and beautiful by mulching trees and weeding out invasive species in the bioswales below N. Galvez. 

    Make sure to wear closed-toed shoes and weather-appropriate clothing that you don't mind getting dirty, and bring a water bottle to stay hydrated. The more the merrier! Many hands make light work.
