During the Drought, It's Time to Help Out - BFQP Volunteer Day - May 23, 2015
Join Bay-Friendly in supporting the community revitalization of the Cohen-Bray House & Oak Tree Farm; which is a registered historic site in the heart of the Fruitvale District of Oakland. Efforts are currently underway via the Victory Garden Foundation and the UCCE Master Gardener Program of Alameda County to restore the gardens at the site and make them a focus for community-based sustainable gardening education and urban agriculture.
BFQP know-how and muscle are needed to perform site work, clear overgrowth, sheet mulch, prune trees and shrubs, repair irrigation, and check the operational status of landscape equipment (tractor, rototiller, shredder). This is a great opportunity for BFQPs to promote their business and Bay-Friendly training, while also contributing to the restoration of a historic community resource. Participating BFQPs, who RSVP, will receive BFC CE credit for renewal and be included in the press release. Work date is Saturday, May 23 from 10am-3pm. Register to participate by contacting BFC Trainer, Stephen Andrews at firstname.lastname@example.org
