Earth Day 2012

23 Apr

This year, the Rinadon Team celebrated Earth Day with Atlanta BeltLine by clearing a 4 acre plot of land to prepare it for an urban farm.

The area is along the southwest section of Atlanta next to the Adair Park neighborhood. On Saturday, the Rinadon Team and other volunteers helped remove invasive plants, litter, and building debris from the site, so that eventually, native plant species, brambles, berry bushes, and fruit trees could be planted in the location.

We arrived at the event site at 8:30am and were greeted with warm smiles and much needed coffee. There were bagels, soft drinks and water provided along with lunch, thanks to the Audubon Society. The Audubon’s mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, mainly focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.

After breaking off into teams, we soon got to work. We helped remove railroad tiles, trash, invasive plants and tons of concrete and asphalt. We are proud to have been a part of this event and we are excited to see the fruit trees planted this fall.

Atlanta BeltLine Partnership (ABLP) is a non-profit organization committed to raising funds from private and philanthropic sources to support the BeltLine. They work with neighborhoods, community organizations, faith organizations, businesses and other groups to raise general awareness and support for the BeltLine.
