Mulchstock Petaluma! October 24 – The Largest Peaceful Lawn Transformation on Record

All hands on deck! Daily Acts needs a big crew for this Saturday’s Mulchstock event.

Sign up here.




From Daily Acts:

We love to party and we love to do good work. At Mulchstock, we’ll do both. Join a huge crowd of volunteers for free food, soulful music, and a whole lot of mulch as we transform 64,000 square feet of green lawn and our hearts forever. We’ll save 1.6 million gallons per year, in just one day.

Local musical heroes and purveyors of permaculture, Sol Horizon and Grand Crue will be energizing us with their upbeat roots/reggae/funk/world music. Local green businesses will be supporting us with delicious food, massages, and interesting booths as we sheet mulch this big thirsty lawn.

Not familiar with sheet mulching? It’s a process of layering compost, cardboard, and mulch over a lawn to build soil, save water, and prevent weeds. This project will be a model for other businesses in the lawn laden Redwood Business Park to get rid of their thirsty turf too. Lets work together to create a new normal…and dance while we’re at it!

9-9:30 Registration, coffee, free breakfast, perusing partner tables
9:30-10 Welcome, instructions, split into teams
10-3 Mulching and free lunch
2-3 Grand Crue
3-5 Sol Horizon!

Can’t stay the whole time? That’s okay! Come for as much of the event as you can. We need energetic openers and strong closers. Also counts as community service for students.

When:   Saturday, October 24, 2015, 9am-5pm
Where:  1465 N. McDowell Blvd., Petaluma
