In addition, volunteers will canvass the community to let residents know about the market. This effort is part of Resilient Communities, in partnership with Southwest Airlines and Points of Light.

Woodland Restoration With Fine Pruning
Saturday November 18th from 10:00 AM to 1:00PM
The Grant Park Conservancy’s mission is to protect, enhance and preserve Grant Park. The City of Atlanta is only able to do the bare minimum of maintenance in the park, like mowing the grass and emptying the trash cans. The Conservancy helps augment this by enlisting volunteers to help with everything else- tree and plant maintenance, plantings, repairs and beautification projects, etc. Join the Grant Park Conservancy and Anna Hauser of Fine Pruning as we show Grant Park some love! We will be pruning, pulling and piling invasive species that are overtaking the woodlands in Grant Park.
