Cari Simson and her team from EarthCorps, plus neighbors Rich and Mary have been busy these past weeks since the Sept 21 groundbreaking for the East Ballard Roadside Rain Gardens. The soil has been dug up and the trenches are made. All that’s left is the fun part….planting!
What: Join us for a planting party!
When: Saturday October 10, 10AM-2PM
Where: East Ballard roadside rain gardens (1101 NW 57th St)
We will be planting shrubs, grasses, and some trees, as well as mulching to help finish up the East Ballard Greenstreet project. Lend a hand and learn about this exciting neighborhood project. No experience necessary! Snacks, tools and instructions provided.
Check out pics from the groundbreaking ceremony a few weeks ago and of the work that’s been going on since then. King 5 was there for the groundbreaking and did a great piece on this project. Click here to watch.
Got questions? Contact Cari Simpson or check out the Facebook event page. We’re looking forward to spending the morning getting our hands dirty and making history with the very first road side rain garden in East Ballard!
This project is made possible through a grant from the Russell Family Foundation to Antioch University Seattle, with additional support from the Surfrider Foundation and East Ballard Community Association
