Call for volunteers: help weed and plant on Sunday, October 13


If you’re looking to get outside on Sunday, here’s a great way to do that and to help transform the Melwood Avenue gateway to the neighborhood.  The Student Conservation and neighborhood volunteers will be will be planting native perennials and getting the site ready for winter as part of an ongoing effort to create biodiversity.

This site has been the focus of a multi-year process to clear an overgrown, knotweed-covered hillside and reclaim the site as a public space.  Last year, 25 native trees were planted, and the work continues. For more information on this project, email
