Dr Mathias is looking for volunteers to help lead with the ongoing landscaping project at Edmunds. We have 5 beautiful designs but we have not settled on a final design. We have some money, but we need to get more. We see this as a project that can help visitors and Burlingtonians alike enjoy nature right in the middle of the city. It can be a place where the students can experience science first hand, and where food can be grown and shared. The vision for the project includes:
- An amphitheater
- Raised beds for each classroom
- Outdoor classroom
- Various ecosystems of native vegetation
- Fruit trees and bushes.
- An ecological place in the middle of the city that helps with some of the run off to Lake Champlain.
We believe that the project is achievable if we break it down into smaller parts. If the many talents of the people in our community are brought together, we will be able to realize an exciting vision.
We need you if you have expertise in any of the following areas: landscape design, soil conservation, marketing, grant writing, organization and scheduling, if you are good at finding deals or equipment, we need you. If you are good at pulling other people into the project, boy do we need you! If you know that we need your expertise in an area that we have not even thought of, please, come and tell us how you can help in our quest.
If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
