Chaffee Housing Trust Landscaping Work Party – by Ark Valley Voice Staff
It’s work, it’s a party — it’s a landscaping work party. This coming Saturday beginning at 9:00 am Saturday, August 27, the Chaffee Housing Trust (CHT) will host the first day of a two-day landscaping event to spruce up the space around the new condos at 101 River Ridge Lane.
The meeting place is the corner of Scott Street, just north of CR 105 near Oak St. and US 50.
The tools for this adventure in landscaping: Wheelbarrows and shovels will be the primary tools to distribute soil, mulch, crushed rock, and other materials via manual labor. Volunteers are encouraged to bring good footwear, gloves, sun hat, and suntan lotion. CHT will bring in some pizza for lunch.
“Any and all willing participants are welcome. We’ll work until we get phase 1 done, as weather allows,” said CHT Executive Director Read McCulloch, who says the forecast looks pretty good. “If you can’t make it [for this first day]we’ll do it again on Sat. Sept. 10 for phase 2 (moving more materials, planting, etc.).
