Join the Oakland Mills Interfaith Center Green Team, in conjunction with Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake's One Water Partnership Program, for a hands on tree maintenance workshop. We will also replant and maintain the 4 rain gardens on the property.
Participants will hear from tree arborist Lou Meyer on how to care for trees, especially our 60 "babies" that we planted in 2015.
If you have them bring safety glasses, work gloves, hand pruners and hand saws. NO CHAINSAWS. Workshop will be 1.5 hours. Simultaneous rain garden maintenance until 4 PM.
Rain garden volunteers should wear long pants, closed shoes and work gloves.
Everyone must also wear a mask in the building.
Bring hand tools labeled with your name, food and water you may need while on site.
