MLK Jr. Day of Service- Tree Planting Sponsored by Fullsteam

  • YE Smith Elementary School 2410 East Main Street Durham, NC 27703 (map)

Have MLK day off? Want to serve your community in this national day of service? Join us in planting trees! Trees provide a multitude of benefits to our community, such as filtering pollution, cooling the air, and creating a hospital environment for humans and wildlife.

Tools will be provided, but we do recommend you bring your own water-bottle, shovel, and gloves if you have them! We will be meeting, and parking, at YE Smith Elementary School.

Thanks to the support of Fullsteam, we will be planting 150 trees in East Durham!

We are at capacity for planters! If you want to help out, you can come at 10 AM to help set up!

About Fullsteam:

Keep Durham Beautiful has long been a partner of Fullsteam in furthering our commitment to environmental stewardship. This tree planting allows us to make a direct impact (biodiversity, air filtration etc) but also allows us to engage with our community. We hope that people see Fullsteam as not just a brewery but also a force for environmental and social good! 

Fullsteam’s mission is to craft distinctly Southern beer that celebrates the farm and food traditions of the American South.

We express our love for community and the land through the Southern Beer Economy. Through the act of commerce -- including our commitment to a living wage for our employees -- our purchases (and yours) foster community and agricultural pride, create wealth, and encourage entrepreneurship within the post-tobacco South.

And though our mission is lofty, we aim to keep it all fun. At the end of the day it's beer: the beverage of celebration, backyard gatherings, good food, and good people.
