Only two volunteers showed up for the first Love Your Block workday, but they got a lot done. The site, which is located on the former Tot Lot at the end of Melwood Avenue, between the Knotweed Knockout space and the garden, will eventually join with those spaces to create a community green area.
Today, those two volunteers cleared a 40 by 90 foot area, removing a lot of poison ivy, knotweed, wild grape, and litter. Many thanks to Terry and Laura for all their work.
There’s still so much to do with clearing this area – but with the downward slope of the land, gravity is on our side for moving debris to the street. It was a fun morning and hopefully more folks will come out the next time.
