Earth Day at 4th Street Farms

April 13 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

  • Sumo

Come join us for Earth Day Service at 4th Street Farms!

We are an all-volunteer free farm in Weinland Park.

We have several teams you can join for Earth Day and keep going all year if you wish

Team Goals:

Team Compost – Get your hands in the soil!
Team Little Free Library – Support education and literacy!
Team Plant It – Grow our food!
Team Mow It Down – Clean up areas and mow them

Team Objectives:

Team Compost will depend on soil conditions as it’s not good to work wet soil. But, ideally, we need to turn Bin 1 into Bin 2.

Team Little Free Library is 365/24/7 focused on a clean fun space with organized the books (remove anything wet or inappropriate) and fill it full of new items from books to toiletries and food. Bring something to donate!

Team Plant It – This time of year, building up beds with soil amendments and removing invasive plants is critical.
-We’ll add more soil and any other necessary things like bone meal
-Prep beds for planting and clean up the areas
-Fill beds with soil
-Mulch the front & back flowers beds

Team Mow it Down – Cleaning the paths with a weedwacker or (if you have it) a mower.

The paths have fertile soil created by composted wood chip and cardboard. Team Mow it Down and Team Plant it can work together to transfer rich soil from the paths into the beds with the shared goal of clear and less spongy pathways.

Woody, Shauna, Katie & Jake will be leading activities.
