Bay Haven Beautification and Green Apple Day of Service -- Come Out, Volunteer, Make New Friends, Make A Difference!

The USGBC Florida Gulf Coast Chapter is proud to partner with Bay Haven School of Basics Plus, a public elementary school in Sarasota County, to as one of our Chapter's Green Apple Day of Service projects.

And we need your help!

Bay Haven is undergoing a phased renovation over the next couple of years, including the creation of new green spaces on campus with an enlarged central courtyard. Team leaders envision transforming the campus green areas into edible landscapes. The program aligns with our Chapter's Vision "to hand the next generation a healthy, self-sustaining Florida."

The intent is to use Permaculture principles and edible plants to transform the landscape and create a self sustaining, abundant source of healthy foods for Bay Haven students. The food forest will also serve as an educational environment for students to learn firsthand about growing food, as well as many other school subjects.

 

You can participate in this transformation by volunteering at Bay Haven's Beautification Day event on Saturday, September 27, from 8am to 2pm. 

During the workday we will be weeding, sheet mulching, installing plants, adding walking paths, and other related gardening activities.

 

  • Who Should Attend:
    Anyone interested in helping with the effort!
  • What To Bring: 
    Your gardening tools. We particularly will be needing rakes, shovels, wheelbarrows ... and any other tools you believe may be useful. Healthy refreshments and drinks will be provided.  
  • More Information: 
    If you are interested in learning more about this project, please contact Roger Landry, CxA, LEED AP BD+C or Malory Foster, RDN, LDN. We are also seeking individuals interested in helping create a film to document and share the project and, of course, sponsorship.
  • RSVP:
    Preferred, but not required.  Y'all come!

We look forward to seeing you at Bay Haven on the 27th to help with this important, innovative project! 

THANKS TO OUR
WONDERFUL SPONSORS!
