"Green Army" Waller Creek Cleanup

Date: 

Thu, 10/04/2012 - 11:00am to 2:00pm

 

AMD, Keep Austin Beautiful, and other key organizations are partnering to deliver a unique “Green Army” volunteer event for the public on Thursday, October 4th from 11am-2pm. Participants will help beautify Austin's own Waller Creek and Lady Bird Lake - and even help with recovery in Bastrop’s State Park – by joining experienced team leaders as we clean-up trash / recyclables, identify invasive species, and make "seed balls" for the Bastrop Lost Pines Project.

If you ever have an oil spill or really anything that isn’t an elemental poison (lead, mercury, cadmium, etc.) in an area near where you’re growing food drench it with molasses and water or, if it’s a large area, spread dry molasses and water it in. It will boost the soil biota which will break the oil down into its basic, harmless elements. In your case you could mix it with the cat litter or sawdust that you use to soak up the oil and it will render it harmless pretty quickly.
