Saint Mary Depaving

September 28, 2013 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


RAIN.. or SHINE.. Bring your Rain Gear – we’re braving the rain!

St Mary Ethiopian Church

Join us with project partners the Johnson Creek Watershed Council and Green Lents at Saint Mary Ethiopian Orthodox Church for a day of depaving.

We’re ripping up over 3,700 square feet of pavement for new planting beds and a huge rain garden to help solve flooding problems at the church.

We’ll be starting at 10am and working until about 2pm.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome! Depave will provide volunteers with all the necessary tools, safety gear, snacks and an Ethiopian lunch.

Volunteers are encouraged to come early while it’s cool – orientation is at 9:45. However, all are welcome to come at any time during the day and stay for as long/short as desired.

Due to the physical nature of asphalt removal, volunteers are encouraged to wear long pants and clothing appropriate for tough work. Closed-toe shoes are required to depave – NO EXCEPTIONS.

Large groups, please RSVP. 

See you there!
