Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Council is organizing a community planting as part of our successful round of Greening Grants this Saturday, October 31.
The planting will run from 9am to noon, rain or shine, and will beautify the unsightly traffic triangles on Northwest Boulevard. Volunteers will need to meet at Perfection Tire (1021 NW Blvd) at 8:45am.
We’re looking for folks of all ages and abilities to help us prepare the area for planting and then put in phlox, yucca, echinacea, and other plants that will bloom in stages throughout the year. Ideally we’d like to have 30+ participants.
Yes, we know it’s Halloween, but the planting will be over several hours before trick-or-treating starts.
Please bring any of the following items on the day:
- Lawn rakes
- Garbage bags
- Garden fork and/or hand claws
- Drinking water
We could also use a few volunteers with trucks for hauling. You’ll get a dump pass worth $20, or you can wait until our neighborhood’s Fall Cleanup on November 7 to offload.
Facebook users, please feel free to RSVP to the planting event.
And, lastly, a huge thanks to Perfection Tire for kindly letting us use their lot to park, meet, and store supplies!
