The Earth Day Workshop on April 23rd was a huge success. With a little help from the re:Create GO Group, the Project Eden community gardeners created plot identification signs for all 40 individual plots. The signs were made from reclaimed pallet wood that would have been trashed, some of which was graciously provided by the Grace Church Care Center. The hand-painted signs will be an incredibly beautiful way to distinguish the ownership of the individual plots in the garden, and will improve communication regarding tending preferences.
The goal of re:Create is to repurpose previously-used materials for craft projects like this in an effort to reduce waste and encourage resourcefulness. Reusing materials keeps us focused on our connection with Creation by creating beauty out of items that may otherwise end up in a landfill.
