Native Plant Habitat Garden Installation at McNear Elementary
Want to help be a part of creating a habitat that will continue for generations to come? Register for FREE at: dailyacts.org/events

Register for FREE at: dailyacts.org/events Want to help be a part of creating a habitat that will continue for generations to come? Join Daily Acts and McNear Elementary as we create a native plant habitat garden for students, parents, and of course local wildlife to benefit from for years to come. During this work day we will plant a habitat garden in a previously sheet mulched area incorporating various California native plants and pollinator attracting species, making this an ideal space for outdoor education, observation and enjoyment. Participants will learn about the different native and drought-tolerant plants that are appropriate for our climate and soils, how to install drip irrigation, and other sustainable landscape techniques that are beneficial to incorporate in a garden. We will also be working to sheet mulch another section of under-utilized lawn in preparation for the expansion of this native garden in the fall. The process of sheet mulching or composting the lawn in place, will help reduce water usage on campus while building healthy soil for future planting - a real win-win. We hope you can join us for this opportunity to gain some new garden skills, get your hands dirty and help out a local school! When: Saturday, February 25th | 1pm -4pm Where: McNear Elementary, 605 Sunnyslope Ave, Petaluma, 94952 Cost: Free! Thanks to the City of Petaluma

THE SPIRIT OF US- A Black History Musical Presentation
THE SPIRIT OF US. Sponsored by SAFE HARBOR PROJECT, which is funded by Sonoma County Mental Health Services

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! Despite the brutal origin of our enslaved, African ancestors in the Americas, our hope for redemption has endured, its heartbeat, pulsating through the rhythm of our music. Stemming from a blend of West African and European, Christian persuasions along with our experiences on the plantations of the south, our soulful and deeply expressive musical style, is unmatched. Whether conveying sorrows and covert protests while working in the fields, forcing what little fun that was humanly attainable, weeping and wailing to God for deliverance for their souls, or revealing secret traveling codes and instructions for The Underground Railroad, music served a vital and very functional purpose for every aspect of the lives of our slave ancestors. From Negro spirituals to gospel, songs of sorrow to blues, jubilee to jazz, protest to freedom, and folktale to rap and hip hop, the vibrations of our deeply moving melodies continue to reveal our spirit of freedom, redemption, and hope: THE SPIRIT OF US. Sponsored by SAFE HARBOR PROJECT, which is funded by Sonoma County Mental Health Services as part of The Community Baptist Collaborative to provide stress prevention and relief through music, music events, festivals and at appropriate organizations, you are sure to feel the vibrations of the African American spirit rooted in music that speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes our mind and gives us rest, heals our heart and makes us whole, and flows from heaven to our soul.
