You are invited to take a look at the future home of Heritage Acres Memorial Sanctuary, our green burial preserve, on Saturday, September 21 at noon. Weather permitting, we will hold a huge picnic on the grounds (800 Locust Corner Road in Pierce Township, in Clermont County) for anyone who wants to see the property that Heritage Acres is in the process of purchasing. Bring a blanket or beach towel to sit on, a picnic lunch, sunscreen and bug spray, and of course, an interest in meeting others and learning more about Heritage Acres.
Can’t wait until September 21? Like to work outdoors? Enjoy helping a great cause? Our next Heritage Acres Work Day will be Saturday morning, September 7. Arrive any time between 8 a.m. and noon and help us prepare our future green burial property. Our first Work Day drew nearly two dozen folks who enjoyed community, simply beautiful weather, and breaking a sweat together. We got an amazing amount of work accomplished! Thank you to Bob Booth, Peter Boylan, Donna Buckley, Bob Drake, Bob Lamb, Ellie Lamb, Gretchen Elliston, Rowley Elliston, Vicki Freimuth (who provided refreshments!), Bill Gupton, Marty Hermann, Nancy Moore, Ash Planitzer, Merrick Planitzer, Terry Planitzer, Sue Rahall, Lewis Riley, Jennifer Sanders, Dave Small, Dave Spinney, and Garry Wilson (hopefully we didn’t forget anybody…).
For the September Work Day, bring heavy duty work gloves and BYOT – Bring Your Own Tools. The most helpful are weed-eaters, loppers, pickaxes, clippers, wheelbarrows, chain saws, wire-cutters – and definitely a truck or two would be welcomed. We will continue removal of invasive plants and barbed-wire fencing / fenceposts.
