Mulchstock - Oct 24, 2015


Mulchstock, October 24, 2015

Help save 1.6 million gallons of water per year!

We love to party and we love to do good work. At Mulchstock, we’ll do both. Join a huge crowd of volunteers for free food, soulful music, and a whole lot of mulch as we transform 64,000 square feet of green lawn and our hearts forever.

Local musical heroes and purveyors of permaculture, Sol Horizon and Grand Crue will be energizing us with their upbeat roots/reggae/funk/world music. Local green businesses will be supporting us with delicious food, massages, and interesting booths as we sheet mulch this big thirsty lawn. 

Not familiar with sheet mulching? It’s a process of layering compost, cardboard, and mulch over a lawn to build soil, save water, and prevent weeds. We’ll be creating a model for businesses in the lawn laden Redwood Business Park to get rid of their thirsty turf too. Lets work together to create a new normal...and dance while we’re at it!
