Stone Mountain Propagation Project Workday
August 12, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Seven weeks until the GNPS fall plant sale that will be at Stone mountain. We are shifting our focus somewhat to preparing the stock, the site & the materials for sale, along with the regular maintenance of the stock plants (re-potting, trimming, weeding, labeling, watering). The plants we nurture are used in GNPS restoration projects, supporting replacement of select species within the Park and of course the GNPs plant sale(s).
The propagation effort goes on all year long, it’s success depends on regular volunteers, please consider spending a few hours with us sometime during the month, we have a workday scheduled every week.
To have the gate fee waived tell the attendant you are there for the GNPS workday.
Directions: GPS coordinates 33.812863, -84.158739, to the ‘Walking Trails’ parking lot. Please follow these directions, do not depend on the gate attendants to give you directions. (Do not go to Confederate Hall, the ‘walk-up’ trail lot)
