Two Events on Saturday 16-June: Garden Tour and Paint the Town Green

Though it isn’t officially summer yet, it certainly feels like it with the warm, dry weather we’ve been having. With the nicer weather comes lots of events to choose from. We have two coming up on Saturday 16-June.

Saturday, June 16th 10AM – 2PM
11th Annual Foster-Powell Garden Tour
Tour the gardens of Foster-Powell residents! See what is possible and gain inspiration. You can pick up a copy of the map from either the Holgate Library or the Foster-Powell Community Garden. We will also be posting a link to the map here once it is complete.

Saturday, June 16th 9AM – 1PM
Paint the Town Green
Meet at Essex Park, 7730 SE Center St (map)
Kink 101.9 FM, Solve, Metro Graffiti Program, South East Uplift and Foster-Powell Neighborhood Association invite you to help make the neighborhood even more beautiful.  We will meet at Essex Park for breakfast snacks and a quick training then start the clean-up on 82nd and SE Powell Blvd (route map).  In teams we will work our way south on both sides of 82nd to pick up trash and remove graffiti. At the end of the clean-up lunch will be provided at a central location for all of the participating neighborhoods.

2018 Neighborhood Cleanup Saturday: May 5th

Does shattering household items provide you with a deep sense of satisfaction?

Well, now you can smash and shatter for your neighborhood! In fact, your neighborhood NEEDS you to smash and shatter…and throw and stomp and crush at the Neighborhood Cleanup!

The Mt. Scott-Arleta and Foster-Powell Neighborhood Associations will host our joint annual cleanup event on May 5th, and we need 50 volunteers to help unload cars, throw household items, and smash stuff to fit it in the bins.

Volunteer to Help at the Clean Up

If you’d rather repair, repurpose, and reuse, well, we need you too! The cleanup isn’t just about sending bins full of garbage to the dump. It’s also about finding the treasure in the trash, and volunteering means you get first pick of all of that beautiful treasure.

Volunteers also get to deliver a load of trash for FREE. And they get fed. Last year we had tons of Henry Higgins bagels, Arleta Library Cafe pastries and coffee, sandwiches, chips, and a bunch of other stuff. This year will be even better.

Food, free stuff, and smashing for your hood. Does volunteering get any better than this?

Event Details

Date: May 5th, 2018
Time: 9:00am – 2:30pm
Location: Arleta School, SE 66th and Mitchell
