Workday – Saturday June 22

Come join us for the Lawrence Community Orchard June workday on Saturday, June 22nd, starting at 10am and lasting until about 1pm. It will be a short work day to stay out of the heat of the day, so come early and help make this volunteer-created orchard a success.

The day’s work will be weeding and sheet mulching with cardboard and wood chips.
We still need need truckloads of cardboard! We want brown cardboard that is no smaller than 2ft by 3ft. Cardboard can be found in green cardboard recycling dumpsters throughout the city.

As always, bring water and sun screen. Hope to see you on Saturday, June 22nd at 10am!

Lawrence Community Orchard is located on the far east end of Garfield street in east Lawrence.

Walking and biking to the orchard are encouraged. Please park cars on Delaware street.

Here are some photos from the last workday –
