First Workday & "Things to Do"

Thanks to everyone who came to our first planning meeting. We had a fruitful discussion and were able to cover many important issues. (My daughter Cara has also enjoyed the leftover snacks.) The next meeting will be on Weds. 4/21.

Also, thank you to everyone who is working on donations and other networking opportunities. Your willingness to do this work makes a big difference.

On the first workday on the lot this Saturday, we have decided to do the following:

*Clean out trash
*Remove rubble and rocks, save for later use.
*Build front border
*(Maybe) build back fence
*Eat pizza and meet other neighbors


1. Tools/gloves, etcs. for workday. If you are able to participate this Saturday, please remember to bring and label any equipment for participants to use.

2. Next workday. Another non-Saturday workday will be organized. This is especially for those of you who cannot come on Saturdays due to work commitments, etc.

3. Start Seeds. A generous person has also donated several SEED PACKETS. If you would like to start any of these seeds for the garden, please let Mary know ASAP... it's a little late, but a couple of weeks germinating indoors is still worthwhile.

4. Graffiti. Can someone call the Anti-Graffiti Network (215-685-9556) about the spray paint on the side of 1833 S. Hicks? Ask for a powerwash.

5. Talk to kids. Let the kids near you know that they are invited to help.

If you can think of anything else, feel free to post it on our blog or e-mail Mary.

Looking forward to Saturday!
