This past year we raised money and now we are going to plant it.
The Pocket Park (at Battle Academy West 17th street between Long and Market) is ready for installation. You'll begin to see changes as earth moving work will begin the week of November 19th. The crews will level the site, prep for future electrical, pour side walks, auger for tree planting, etc. We've raised through donations of cash, goods and labor of almost 35,000$ to cover this effort. But we still need help to get the trees and grasses planted and mulched.
As part of MainX24 on December first, we will have two work parties, morning from 9 am to 12 noon and from 1 pm to 4pm to finish the tree planting, to plant grasses and to mulch.
Please email email@example.com your name, phone number, if you want to help morning or afternoon, and how many are in your party.
