Join us Sunday, September 19th for our Annual Fall Roadside Clean Up! Meet at the Homestead 972 Golden Gate Canyon Rd. Black Hawk, CO 80422 at 9 am to get your vests, trash bags and to watch a safety video! Then we’re off to clean up our adopted stretch of Highway 119 between the Gilpin School and the top of Highway 46 (Golden Gate Canyon). We’ll be back in time for lunch at the Homestead Cafe – free lunch for all volunteers!

BRING work gloves, sunglasses, hat, water bottle, good closed-toe shoes.

We need all the help we can get, I hope you can make it! Check out this event on Facebook 🙂

As you know, these events are so important for our community, and our organization. Our grassroots membership based and volunteer powered nonprofit has taken a major hit in revenue by having to cancel our popular annual events like the Spring Cleanse and Summer Solstice Wildcrafting Party in 2020, in addition to our regular monthly events like our Hands-On Health! workshops and Mountain Mama Tea Parties. I’ll be totally honest with you: WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO SURVIVE. Like so many other small businesses who are struggling, the future looks bleak without dedicated and consistent community support.
