Membership Corner: We Shall Fight Them on the Beeches. And the Oaks.

Weavers Way members Leah Buxton and Addison Martin worked with Awbury Arboretum staffer Terance Jones (pictured) to clear vines and debris from this swamp oak at Awbury’s Second Saturday, Aug. 8. Terance got paid. Leah and Addison got Co-op work hours. 

We’ve got plenty more ways for you to earn or maintain your Working Member status by volunteering with our neighbors and partners. For instance: 

  • Awbury’s next Second Saturday is Sept. 9 — and so is the Food Moxie/Weavers Ways Urban Farm Bike Ride, a VERY busy event.
  • The Mt. Airy Village Fair needs lots of eco-ambassadors on Sunday, Sept. 17.
  • You could direct traffic at Mt. Airy USA’s Supper Sessions, the outdoor dinner party on Germantown Avenue Tuesday evenings in September. 
  • Or do your thing at Historic Germantown’s Revolutionary Germantown Festival on Saturday, Oct. 7. It’s always a blast.
