Earth Day Ride to Urban Gardening is TOMORROW, Saturday, April 14th


Join Yay Bikes! for a ride to the Cornerstone Urban Garden at 995 McAllister Ave, Columbus, Ohio 43205 for an Earth Day event. It is not sufficient for us to get together and learn about environmental problems and solutions, we must also take action. Earth Day Columbus is the largest Earth Day volunteer effort in the country (nay, universe) and hosts the largest dedicated celebration in central Ohio.

Meet at the covered picnic area INSIDE the park near the Goodale Park Shelter House. Riders will leave from Goodale Park at 8:20am to reach the garden by 8:50am.

The riders will volunteer in the garden to: help move the garden from one lot to another, assemble a hoop house, cut down very small trees (2-3 inch), till and prepare beds, plant flowers, and generally prepare the site for planting.

Once on site, we expect to be active in the garden for four hours. For those who volunteer, a barbecue lunch will be provided along with drinks. Riders should bring shoes to work in a garden, water, gloves, snacks, and safety glasses if they have them but not all will need them.

Cornerstone Urban Garden is in its third year and is committed to actively demonstrating how to feed a family out of a garden in a socio-economic area that desperately needs that information.

This ride is FREE!
