Location: 2311 SW Myrtle St., Seattle, WA 98106
(Just off Delridge and near the Home Depot in West Seattle)

Park at 2133 SW Myrtle St., 98106. From there volunteers will walk over to the garden, which is about a block away.

Project Leader: Zach Zink

Details: Clearing a perimeter with leaf raking and bramble clipping. Spreading mulch, painting,and weed whacking. Clearing obstacles out of rows to get ready for tilling, making a compost pile.

Bring gloves and wear boots. If you have rakes, hedge clippers, branch cutters, and other misc. lawn care tools, please bring them. We will have an assortment of tools on hand.

At 4:00 PM, when the work is over, we plan to celebrate by tilling the first row. Vince Felice from 21 Acres Farm in Woodinville has graciously donated his time and his 26 horsepower tiller to tackle the rows!
