Our next regular meeting is on Thursday, March 19, 7 PM in the Social Hall at the Oaklette United Methodist Church. Lynn Gilbert will will teach us about Vermi-Composting. Learn how you can take your kitchen scraps and turn them into a rich compost to enrich your soil and jump start your plants. And in the process you help reduce the flow of trash to our landfills and provide great stewardship of our environment. We are now meeting in the big social hall at the church, so there is plenty of room for you to come on out and join us for this interesting presentation. As always there will be light refreshments and door prizes after the talk.
On Saturday, March 21, from 9:30 AM to Noon, we'll be doing our quarterly Adopt-A-Road Cleanup along Indian River Road. We meet at side parking lot of Indian River Post Office, 3810 Indian River Road, Chesapeake and we'll be cleaning up 1 mile of Indian River Road from the city limits at Wingfield Avenue all the way to MacDonald Road. This will help to spruce up the area, collect trash that will otherwise get washed into the river and impact wildlife, and give us the opportunity to interact with residents and businesses along Indian River Road. The city will provide garbage bags and orange safety vests. We'll have water and a few snacks available. Please wear closed-toe shoes, a hat and bring work gloves and other items that may be useful. Participants under 18 years of age must have adult supervision.
