October 8th Park/Playground work party moved to October 15th, 9-12 noon
We've moved the October 8th scheduled work party at Arbor Lodge Park and Harper's Playground to coordinate with the City Wide Parke Diem event the 14th and 15th.
Please consider signing up on line for Parke Diem at Arbor Lodge Park/Harper's Playground. Just go to Parke Diem and scroll to find Arbor Lodge Park.
Why sign up online? To get a T-Shirt and to confirm we have enough volunteers to be part of Parke Diem. The Portland Parks Foundation supplies the T shirts, snacks, water, and sometimes a little extra bling.
What will we do October 15th?
* weed around trees - taking the circle out a little to keep mowers away from tree trunks
* spread bark mulch around the trees, low near the tree, higher at the outside edge
* weed and de-head flowers in Harper's Playground
* spread bark mulch there too
* flame weed the baseball diamonds, infields, sidewalks, etc. (you must be 18 to do this, have closed toed shoes, sign a waiver, and participate in a short training)
* weed around signs and spread bark mulch there too.
It is easy work, fun to meet neighbors, end the work party trying out the slide in the playground.
