Clean up to prepare for planting | Volunteers Needed
May 29, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
The GNPS site in the BeltLine Arboretum project is moving forward in exciting ways. We have begun removing the unwanted plants and during two productive work days earlier this spring, a hearty group of volunteers tackled ivy, privet, amur honeysuckle, liriope and kudzu! The area, with a view of downtown Atlanta, is near Elizabeth Street and Bernina Avenue in Inman Park and less than an acre in size. The plan, as usual, is to get rid of the invasive plants and replace them with native plants while educating the public about the value and beauty of this kind of gardening.
The next workday will be on Friday, May 29th at 8 am, and we’ll stay until it gets too hot or we get too tired. We need a large number of workers that day to make an impact on the ongoing clean up.
Directions: Google Maps: enter Bernina Ave. and Elizabeth St. Elizabeth St and Bernina is a paved Entrance to the Atlanta BeltLine. Up the walkway a bit and to the left on the spur trail you will see us at the Beech Circle.
Parking: 1) Street Parking near the site but may be difficult to find a space. 2) Public Parking Deck on N Highland a short walk from the site. Cost about $6. 3) BeltLine Skate Park has free street parking and may not be crowded at 8am. Also a short walk under the Freedom Parkway Bridge to the site. 4) Carter Center Parking with a short walk down the Freedom Parkway Bike Trail.
