Plainfield Farmers Market, on the lawn of the Grace United Methodist Church
We'll gather at the Plainfield Farmers Market (on the lawn of the Grace United Methodist Church) at 5:30pm and then we'll make our way over to the Rec Field, visiting plants along the way. All ages and experience levels welcome. Event is sprinkle or shine (if it's really pouring we'll postpone). Please RSVP if you can via email: dandelion778 (at) yahoo (dot) com or send a message via Facebook to Dandelioness Herbals.
By donation $1-100+ cash at the plant walk or via Paypal, no one turned away for lack of funds. This event is a fundraiser for Border Kindness. If anyone would like to contribute to our collective donation w/o attending the plant walk, you can send $ via PayPal to paypal.me/dandelioness or send me a message.
WHAT IS BORDER KINDNESS?
Border Kindness is an organization based in Mexicali, Mexico, that has been providing 1,500 meals daily, supporting members of the migrant community in intense summer heat, including those that are being deported from the US and left in an unfamiliar area, sometimes without even their shoes."Border Kindness provides migrants, refugees, and the displaced with comprehensive services that include food, shelter, clothing and medical care. Our programs and interventions are designed to identify, protect and nurture the most vulnerable – including women, children, elderly and families. Border Kindness believes everyone should have the opportunity to live free of pain, hunger, intimidation and fear. We believe everyone is our neighbor." For more info, click here.
ACCESSIBILITY + TRANSPORTATION
We will ramble from the church on flat, paved sidewalk down Mill St to Rec Field Rd. There are no steps to the Rec Field, but there is a medium-steep, unpaved hill down to the field. There is a parking lot with plenty of parking and Port-a-Potty that is not wheelchair-accessible at the Rec Field. Please let me know if you have any questions.Please bring water and whatever else you need in order to be comfortable for our time together (sun, rain, bugs, etc). Plant walk will be in English, with Spanish clarification throughout if anyone would like.Carpooling encouraged, feel free to post on this page to coordinate. The church is on the GMT/RCA Route 2 Commuter bus between Montpelier and St. Johnsbury for those who would like to arrive via bus from either direction (though the plant ramble will end after the last bus).
