Verge Headquarters Blitz – Volunteers Needed Aug 7
There’s not much better motivation to finish up some projects around our site than have Geoff Lawton call and tell us that he is going to stop in to do some filming.
So needless to say, we’ve decided to accelerate the completion of a few outstanding projects, notably, (i) rebuilding our garden swales and (ii) building a dry-stack retaining wall.
We need some help to get these projects done and are therefore putting a call-out to volunteers for Thursday August 7th.
Here’s what we have to offer each volunteer:
- Hands-on learning: How to build, level and complete an urban swale & dry-stack retaining wall.
- Q&A with Rob and Michelle: Pick our brains and get your questions answered while we work alongside each other.
- See our site: Check out our solar greenhouse, rocket mass heater, rainwater harvesting, food forest, super productive veggie gardens & tons more cool stuff.
- Food and beverage: We promise to keep you well fed, well watered and will finish the day with some socializing and beverages.
- Free Event Ticket: As a thank-you, we will offer each volunteer free entry to the event “Establishing a Food Forest with Geoff Lawton” (worth $75)
Here is what we need:
- Dedicated volunteers who can start at 9 am and stay until the project is complete on Thursday August 7th.
- Motivated folks who are physically fit, willing to shovel and/or place rock and can handle a wheelbarrow.
As we are unsure how many folks will be eager to take us up on our offer, and we can only reasonably accept a limited number of volunteers, we’ve created a little application form below.
If you are willing & available, please fill out the form! We will get back to you right away!
UPDATE JULY 31ST – Thanks folks!! Have more than enough volunteers, so I’ve taken down the form.
