Managed Meadow Volunteer Day

Saturday, March 27, 2021

The Elizabeth River Trail's award-winning managed meadow and edible orchard in Chelsea needs a little spring cleaning! First planted in December 2017, the meadow features native wildflowers, grasses and edible fruit trees. It requires maintenance a couple of times a year - that's where you come in. From raking to helping us stake and rope off the meadow, we need your help to keep the flowers safe and blooming all year long! In order to maintain safe social distancing, this event will be limited to 25 volunteers. **ADVANCE REGISTRATION OPEN ON MARCH 14th & IS REQUIRED**. Masks are required. Activities include: - Prepping and raking the meadow - Collecting litter along the Trail - Sowing seed bombs - Staking and roping off meadow Street parking is available in the Chelsea neighborhood. Please bring your own masks and water. Additional bottled water and disposable masks will be available, if needed. Sanitizer, snacks, work gloves and trash bags provided.
