Sustainability Matters’ Making Trash Bloom project – native pollinator and wildlife habitat at landfills – is coming to Rapp! Join us and our host, Rappahannock County, to help seed Phase 1 of Making Trash Bloom Rapp and learn about the project and future plans.

A sustainably sourced spread (with a Halloween theme) will be served by Making Trash Bloom’s “Official Culinary Sponsor”, Friendly City Food Co-op. Costumes are optional but encouraged!

Because of space restrictions, attendance at this event is limited to guests invited through our community partners, as well as Sustainability Matters members and volunteers (join us as a member, if you haven’t already!). Registration is required. Please dress appropriately to be outdoors at the landfill and bring your own chair.

The rain date for this event is the following Sunday, Oct 23, also from 2-4 pm.

Phase 1 of Making Trash Bloom Rapp is funded by grants from the PATH Foundation and the Northern Piedmont Community Foundation (Richard Lykes Community Fund). We’re deeply grateful for their generosity, as well as that of Rappahannock Electric Cooperative, sponsor of this Party at the Landfill, and Ernst Conservation Seeds, seed sponsor of Making Trash Bloom Rapp.
