Just next to my local library, there is a labyrinth. Instead of a minotaur, the center holds a white post which says “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in a multiplicity of languages.
The path is defined with brick and covered with gravel over bare earth. Over time, the gravel has thinned and weeds and grass have taken hold. In the thick of summer, the weeds can get so high that the path is obscured completely. So I started pulling up weeds.
But I came to the hardest conclusion I’ve had to come to, which is the realization that I can’t do this alone.
So, what are you going to do about it?
My plan is to recruit help with this enormous task and beat back the weeds so they won’t need to mow the place just to keep the path visible.
How do you plan to do that?
First, I’ve set a date and time–August 23rd, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Next, I’ve put the word out in a few select venues that this thing is happening. And third, I’m putting up this blog post to spread the word that way.
Where is this, again?
It’s just behind Sandy Springs Library at 395 Mount Vernon Hwy NE, Sandy Springs, GA 30328. (Note: the parking lot closest to it only has an entrance on the Mount Vernon side of the library.)
What should people expect?
They should expect to come dressed for dirty work and bring whatever gardening implements they think may help. There’s plenty of weeding to go around. They should probably wear sunscreen and definitely bring water.
Why would anybody want to do this?
Because it’s a helpful thing to do that makes the place better for everyone.
Any other questions? Leave ’em in the comments and I’ll try to get to them as soon as I’m able.
