Saturday morning was truly dedicated to the hard-core Seattle souls that don’t let a little rain or cold get in the way of making their neighborhood shine. As they say, April showers bring May flowers and so with this good start, our flowers are going to be going gangbusters by May! Our morning started with a quick stop and photo-op at Ballard Stoneway Hardware where compost was to be had for the planters. Thank-you Randy (pictured above in front of his store) for contributing a few bags to our cause. Over on 14th, the real fun was soon to begin as Shannon, Steph, Lori, Ray, Sharon, Casey, Dar and Dawn pitched in to clean out the dead leaves, deadhead, prune and compost. The tall grasses have been removed since they were getting too tall. We left a few in the median at 59th if anyone wants them!
Interested in more fun in East Ballard in April? Come join us on April 14 for our Adopt A Street Cleanup!
