One Dharma Nashville Volunteer Day

One Dharma Outreach Day
Saturday, March 30, 1- 4 p.m.
Waterway Restoration- Tree Planting

Be a part of the countywide effort to restore creeks, streams, and rivers to pre-flood conditions or better. We’re partnering with Hands On Nashville for this project. Volunteers will address the critical needs of a watershed riparian zone. Riparian zones are important natural spaces often referred to as “ribbons of life” and are located where the water meets the land. These habitat rich stream banks extend several dozen feet inland. Flooding greatly damaged Davidson County riparian areas. During this project, we will re-plant the land with native trees. Natural barriers will also be established to discourage mowing and future clear-cutting. The location is 361 Wimpole Drive, which is Hands on Nashville’s Urban Farm.

· NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED! All work is supervised by a Project Leader, and all equipment and materials are provided!

· Volunteers will work together to plant trees in the riparian zone. Expect to be walking through tall grass and bushes.

· Volunteers should wear work clothes that can get dirty. Please dress appropriately for the weather.

· Closed-toed shoes are required. Work boots, hiking boots, or old sneakers are great. No flip flops or sandals.

· Be prepared to have fun and learn about watersheds in Davidson County!

Please join us, it should be a fun afternoon. Please email raleighwillson@comcast.net to confirm your participation.
