In concert with National Public Lands Day, The Sustainability Project is hosting a Community Workday in the Emerson Brook Forest on September 28, 9am-3pm. The Center, located at 57 Emerson Brook Drive in Gilsum, features wheelchair accessible trails and edible forest gardens for public use and ecosystem benefit. The center functions as a learning laboratory for edible forest gardening, permaculture design and sustainable community practices. This year's work projects at the Emerson Brook Forest Center include trail maintenance, creating interpretive trail signage and set up for the following day’s Music and Art in the Forest event. Long pants, sturdy shoes, work gloves, and a bag lunch are recommended. If you aren't able to do the physical aspects of the work, come anyway to be part of a nature-based community endeavor.
