Celebrating Nature, Community and the Arts

Land Trust Community Work Day
Saturday, May 30, 9:00 am
Phase II of Dekalb Ave. Planting

We need 20-25 people to plant native grasses and wildflowers between the trees that Trees Atlanta planted on the Dekalb Ave. berm. Experienced planters are especially needed, but anyone can help. Bring as much newspaper as you can to spread around each plant. We also need help mulching and watering even if you can’t plant.  Wear sturdy shoes, bring gloves and drinking water, hand shovels, watering cans. Please come out and help. Thanks!

LCCLT Annual Meeting
Sunday, May 31, 10:30 am-12:30 pm
The community is invited to our Annual Meeting, a special Board meeting and open house with snacks and drinks, socializing, Q&A with the Board, our annual Board election, and planning for this year’s 30th anniversary celebration. We’ll also hold a “heartsong circle” – passing a heart-shaped pillow hand to hand to give anyone who wishes a chance to speak from the heart about memories, experiences, and future visions for the Land Trust. Please join us! Location: the picnic tables outside the Gorilla Grill. (Rain location to be announced.)

“Remember, YOU are the community in our name.”

Neighbor Kate Emery’s painting of the Land Trust on Jan. 28, 2014, is available as a matted print, ready for framing, and on men’s and women’s T-shirts. View the painting here, and get your print or T-shirt at our next event. (Thanks, Kate!)

“When I moved to Lake Claire, I didn’t know how I would fit into this neighborhood – I needed to make new friends, build a new life. Soon I felt I was living in a real community, where people know each other by name and are involved in shared activities. Then I realized that the community is centered in the Land Trust.” – a new neighbor
