Come out to help Pick Up America break ground on a bottle brick bench at a new community garden in the Historic Five Points District. That’s right — they’re turning non-recyclable waste into a useful community space. If you come out, you’ll also learn some natural building techniques. They could really use the help of some SCA trail builders. Check out the dates below for Denver details. Also, they’re gonna be traversing the Rockies as part of our trashy trek across the country, so give Jeff a call if you live in Colorado and want to get involved.
