Time: We’ll meet at 8 am for a planting demonstration, then keep going to various parts of the neighborhood. Check the blackboard on the porch at the meeting spot if you want to join in later in the morning—we’ll leave a note with an idea of the morning’s planting route. End time of noon is approximate.
Come out and help the neighborhood spruce up for the mesquite festival and porch fest. We will be cleaning up garbage, pruning, removing unwanted weeds and invasive species from right-of-ways, traffic circles, chicanes, and the community garden.
Over 20 college students will also be helping and learning about community efforts.
Meet at the community garden and Nature park. If you can't make it at 8am, you will easily be able to find us working somewhere in the neighborhood.
Bring water, hat/sunscreen, gloves, and extra tools if you have them. See you there.
Water-harvesting, traffic-calming chicane clean up party - this Saturday, August 10 at 8am. Meet at the intersection of 9th Ave and 1st Street. Bring water, pruning shears, and gloves.
We will work together to spruce up some of our streets' chicanes and circles. Brad Lancaster will show you how to identify the plants we want to keep (native wildflowers, native grasses, and good trees) and the plants we want to take out (weeds, invasive grasses, weed trees). We'll also show you how to prune and replant. We can also help provide new plants where needed.
