SoundCheck, the Chamber's Young Professional Council, is inviting you to join us for our first Memphis Clean by 2019 project! Volunteers will help Jacob's Ladder CDC with three projects in that area:
1) Community Garden (corner of Boston and midland). Volunteers will plant a long row of tomatoes, a long row of potatoes and then some blackberries along with perimeter. We will also plant a dogwood tree in there. For this we need volunteers to bring gloves, and shovels if possible. Both big shovels and gardening shovels. We will provide the tiller and plants for the gardening.
2) Volunteers will be cleaning up a lot across the street from the garden and then planting some border trees along the road and between this property and the one next to it. Clean-up will be simple.
3) 369 Boston (within sight of the garden) burned a while ago and it has been sitting vacant for too long. The folks at Coca-Cola have hired a demo crew to come in that morning and get rid of it. Next to that house, there is a small ditch that is made of concrete and is about a foot deep. It runs next to the house being torn down, across Boston and then along the side of an empty lot across the street. That ditch is very overgrown and needs to be cleaned up. We will work with others to do this and do some general clean-up along Boston.
Finally, the Jacobs Ladder CDC is having a festival that day as part of this clean up effort. They will have activities for kids and food/drinks for anyone who wants to come. This will all be happening right where we will be serving.
What we need everyone to bring:
3) shovels of all sizes
4) themselves to Rec Room for the after party.
We will provide the plants, tiller, trash bags, etc.
Weather Note: This project will take place rain or shine. If the weather includes lightning, we will send out a cancelation notice that morning to registrants. Please dress appropriately in case of rain!
MIXER VENUE CHANGE!
To thank our volunteers, we're hosting a Volunteer Mixer afterwards from 1-3 pm at Rec Room (3000 Broad Avenue). We'll provide tickets to volunteers for complimentary drinks and food at the project that morning.
