Ten hardy volunteers came out on Saturday to tend green spaces and pick up trash on the eastern side of the neighborhood. An earlier date for this cleanup was cancelled due to weather.
Weather was no problem on Saturday — it was brilliantly sunny and very warm. First, volunteers weeded and cleaned up the parklet at Melwood Avenue and Finland Street. They picked up trash and cut vines that were choking trees on the hillside by the Melwood steps.
The next stop was the Knotweed Knockout site, then Gold Way. Volunteers also took the opportunity to clear some vegetation that blocked the sidewalk.
Finally, picking up trash and clearing vegetation on the Apolo steps.
Thanks to everyone who came out to help — it looks great! The next cleanup and green space maintenance day will be on August 9. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
