Earth Day Garden Party & Potluck Lunch
April 23 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm PDTFree
In celebration of Earth Day, we’ll have an informal, open-to-all gardening party in the small front garden at the Dekeling vicarage (temple house) in NE Portland.
We’ll garden for two hours and then gather for lunch and fellowship in either the backyard or the living room, depending on weather.
Bring your own tools and gloves if you need them. We’ll have extra tools to share, and weeding buckets. For lunch, Dekeling will provide drinks and a main dish. If you also feel inspired to bring a potluck dish for sharing, please do! If you’re tired from daily life and you don’t have the energy to cook—come anyway, and enjoy the food offerings of others. If you are not able to garden, there will be other, less strenuous tasks available. Feel free to bring friends and family, too.
We honor mother earth by caring for the land-home of the local plants, animals and spirits. We repay the generosity of our landlord-benefactors by caring for their land. We respect our neighbors, many of whom have lived on this block for generations, by doing our part to make our shared street beautiful and friendly.
