The time is finally here...it's time to PLANT!

Help us get the garden going at the most happening community greenspace in the neighborhood!
We depaved a parking lot, and now we’re ready to add a dash of paradise. 

Join Our Happy Block and Depave for a fun day in the dirt where we’ll put in over 1,000 plants all around the new greenspace.
Celebrate with us and learn all about naturescaping and rain gardens!
(or if you don't want to play in the dirt, we can always use food donations. Please 'reply' if you'd like to contribute in this fashion.)
Tell your friends!

Date: Saturday, October 22
Starting: 9:00 am - show up whenever you can help during the day
Site: Calvary Church parking-lot | 8040 SE Woodstock
Volunteers of all ages are welcome! Depave will provide volunteers with all the necessary tools and gloves.
Please wear clothing appropriate for the weather.

Please email me with any questions or to let us know you'll be bringing food!

We are also looking for folks who have a lot of experience in landscaping to help lead volunteer crews.
Let me know if you are interested!

Thanks so much!

    What we've already achieved together...          
  • Planted 29 new street trees on our block!
  • Greatly improved neighborhood safety by cutting-off the entrance/exit from Calvary's parking lot to Martins Street (this prevents vehicles from 'short-cutting' through the parking lot at high speeds. )
    added sidewalks,  curbs and street trees where the concrete approaches once were.
  • Planted a new Native Plant Garden!
  • Painted a 50' x 23' Mural & added lighting to deter graffiti and prevent crime
  • Depaved over 4,300 square feet of asphalt!
  • added Curbs and new parking stall striping to parking lot
  • Worked together with our fellow neighbors to  take ownership of our BLOCK!     
  • had a Neighborhood Block Party during national night out

This project, and past projects, was made possible by a partnership with the following organizations (Thank You!)
