Description

On this week’s edition of Sustainability Now!, your host, Justin Mog, puts down his shovel for a conversation with Lisa Dettlinger, Programs Director for Louisville Grows. We talk about plans for the huge Schnitzelburg/Meriwether Tree Planting coming up on Saturday, Dec. 7th, 8am-4pm, with a meeting location at Amvets Post 9, 1567 S Shelby St.

We need 250 volunteers on Dec. 7th as we dig toward our goal of planting 1000 trees this season! No experience is necessary. Citizen Foresters will be there to lead you in becoming a proper tree planter! Other volunteer opportunities include registration, breakfast, and lunch volunteers. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided along with gloves and water bottles. Dress appropriately for the weather & dress to get dirty. Closed-toed shoes are required.

We also discuss the two tree plantings in partnership with the Green Heart Project (more info is at http://greeheartlouisville.com); the Citizen Forester program; Louisville Grows’ vital role in tackling health disparities; the Healthy House community space focusing on healthy living, healthy eating, environmental education, and environmental equity; and the new greenhouse addition coming to the Healthy House this winter!

More information and a link to sign-up to volunteer is at http://louisvillegrows.org

As always, our feature is followed by your community action calendar for the week, so get your calendars out and get ready to take action for sustainability NOW!
