FAMILY NATURE HIKE & PICNIC

Saturday, November 10, 10:00 a.m. – noon

Bring the kids and a bagged lunch for a fun morning exploring Lake Jackson Mounds Archaeological State Park with Ranger Evan Martin. This treasure in our own back yard encompasses six of the seven known earthen temple mounds built before Spanish explorers arrived in this part of Florida, so our tour will give us a glimpse of daily life for Native Americans. This beautiful park also includes the lake, prairie, and hilly ravines that are home to abundant wildlife and native plants. $3 per car entry fee. Meet at parking area near entrance. Bring a picnic lunch. See event on Facebook or email [email protected] to RSVP.

ADOPT A WEEK IN THE MOSAIC GARDEN

Cool weather has finally arrived and the winter garden is planted, so all we need is you! We are growing collard greens, carrots, and rainbow chard to share with Manna on Meridian food bank. If your family, Sunday School group, or ministry would be willing to Adopt A Week to water the garden, please contact Jessie Perry at [email protected] for the latest schedule.


NOVEMBER ECO-TIP:

Fall into Composting

Wondering what to do with all that hurricane debris? Burning creates hazardous air for your neighbors to breathe, so either put it on the curb for pick up or try composting it! Composting is a way to reduce the volume of organic wastes and return them to the soil to benefit growing plants. We compost our church kitchen vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, and egg shells in a compost tumbler, but you can also have great results with a compost pile in your yard. Either way, making compost keeps these materials out of landfills where they take up space and release methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Learn more at https://www.epa.gov/recycle/composting-home
