2016 Adopt An Acre Program

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

JUNE  thru SEPTEMBER 2016


Last year's pilot program went so well with volunteers adopting acres that we are continuing it this year.


The Friends of the Grove have the grass cut regularly throughout the acres. But, to keep costs down, we can use additional help.


We have 2 needs:


Weed-Whackers

  • We are looking for a handful of folks with weed-whackers to be assigned specific areas to cut this summer and early fall. Paying to weed-whack the grass around the ground plaques adds an expense to the Friends that we would like to lower so we can repave more roadway and do other upkeep.


Adopt an Acre

  • The following acres are still in need of being adopted. Can you or your organization commit to caring for an acre from June - October to help? Please email Elaine at secretary@friendsmohgrove.org if you would like to sign up.


GROUND RULES FOR ADOPTING AN ACRE


Thank you for adopting an acre in the Medal of Honor Grove

  • Remove branches and sticks to the helipad, if possible. They can be piled there for removal at another time. If you can't, notify Elaine that a pile is at your acre.
  • Weed your acre's pad. We ask that any weed killer is only sprayed on the pad and NOT on the grass anywhere else in the acre.
  • Wash the obelisk, if needed. There is access to water at the Knox Building. No power washing of the obelisks.
  • Wash the ground plaques. They can be sprayed with Simple Green and wiped off in lieu of water.
  • Wash the cement walkway.  You can use a moss remover on the walkway only.
  • Weed Whack the grass around your state’s ground plaques if possible. (There is no electric in the Grove so you’d need to use a gas weed whacker but if you don’t have one, it’s fine. We have volunteers who can weed whack if needed. Notify us if you need help)


Let us know your schedule, progress and any problem you encounter.

We cannot guarantee the state you request will still be available when you contact us but we hope you'll be open to adopting another state if necessary.
