Bitter Lake P-Patch Work Party, Sunday June 5th

This Sunday, June 5th, will be the second Work Party at the new Bitter Lake P-Patch site! Two weeks ago we moved two of the five Alaska Cedars on the site and transplanted them on far west edge of the property.  We will move the remaining 3 on Sunday and welcome anyone who’d like to help. We need to take care of this so that we can be ready for a contractor to come do the major excavation of cut and fill to create our garden.

We would love to have your help Sunday.  We will meet at 10 AM at the site, which is on the North side of the Bitter Lake Reservoir Open Space near N. 143rd St. and Linden Ave. N.  Please join us.  If you can bring shovels, tarps, loppers, gloves, and if possible, snacks or drinks, it would add to the effort.  We plan to work until 2, or we get enough tree moving done for the day.  If you can only join us late, or for part of the day, that’s great, too.  Please invite any friends or neighbors who might be interested even if just to see the P-Patch location and get acquainted with the project.  We need more community involvement and volunteers to make the garden happen this year.
If you have any expertise in transplanting trees or landscape design or maintenance we’d love to learn from you.

If we don’t finish the three trees Sunday, we will come back the following Sunday, June 12th.
