What a week! In the last few days, we’ve conducted site visits to the Piney Grove Baptist Church and the Mohammed School, as well as libraries in DeKalb County, and created designs we aim to install in the next few weeks. It’s an exciting time of year to be in the planting business! Are you planting anything this spring? Shoot us an email or tag us on Instagram @RootsDownGa. We’d love to hear from you!
We’re also excited to share that our first Community Forum for DeKalb County will be on April 14. We’ll have more details and a link to RSVP very soon!
Stay tuned to future Rabbit Holes for updates on how you can get involved in this ambitious project, or better yet, sign up for our weekly newsletter to stay in the loop for everything Roots Down!
