GNPS BeltLine Arboretum Fall Planting
November 6, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us to plant at our site in the BeltLine Arboretum Friday, November 6. There will be lots of encouragement and questions from the folks using the Beltline. It’s fun and we need as many pairs of hands as possible to get all of these plants into the ground!
What – Bring your own water, sunscreen, hat, bug spray, snacks, as needed. Bring your gloves and hand tools – pruner, lopper, saw, hand hoe. We’ll have a few larger tools like a shovels, maddocks and a pole saw.
Where – the exact site does not have an address. The closest intersection is one block north of of N. Highland and Elizabeth Street at Bernina Avenue and Elizabeth Street, in Inman Park. From this intersection (where Elizabeth Street dead-ends) enter the BeltLine park on the paved walkway, then turn right and walk up the hill to the Beech Circle, a circle of granite stones right next to the trail. That’s where we will meet.
Parking – There are several options:
Street parking is difficult but available on nearby streets – especially early in the morning. Be sure to read all the signs about parking limitations.
Some people park at the Carter Center and walk down the trail to the site.
There are a few parking decks along N. Highland – cost will be about $6.
Free parking is available at the BeltLine Skate park – a short walk along the trail under the Freedom Parkway Bridge will get you to our site. You can find BeltLine maps on their website.
