Volunteers should wear work clothes they can get dirty, boots or sneakers, gloves, and sunscreen. We are asking attendees to bring plant donations to aid in the development of outdoor spaces at the Mill. Our next five year plan primarily focuses on the exterior of our facility. Gardens and parks, an outdoor classroom, a hammock tree garden, and much more are on our growing list of projects. Each development requires trees and plants. Provide some color and foster growth at Lowe Mill A&E by bringing plants and trees that we can plant around our facility.
