SPRINGTIME IN PORTLAND: Time to spruce up the park!
Join VFP 72, Lloyd EcoDistrict, and other partners for the first community work party of the year, as we ready Peace Memorial Park for Memorial Day.
We hope to get enough volunteers to clear out most of the weeds, and to re-define and mulch the paths. Then we will be able to reassess the garden, see what’s working and what’s not working, and start planning for further improvements – including making the park part of the Lloyd neighborhood’s Pollinator Pathway.
PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU WANT TO HELP!
Lloyd EcoDistrict is taking the lead on volunteer efforts. Getting a head count will help them figure tools needed and work assignments, not to mention refreshments. To help get a head count, they created this NobleHour sign-up link.
There will be some gloves and hand tools available on site, but if you can bring your own, please do!
