Plant, weed, clean up – and free pizza and beer!

I just put an event in the calendar, but in case you aren’t looking there – this Saturday, April 3rd, is your chance at free pizza and beer courtesy of Central Cinema – all you need to do is come out and help us weed, clean, and re-plant the Union Street Public Gardens! Come plant, weed and pick up litter along E Union St 1-4pm this Saturday, April 3rd. Meet at 23rd & Union at 1pm.

We have plants ordered to fill in the gaps in our Union Street Public Gardens along E Union from 20th-23rd Avenues. IMPORTANT: Please provide your own gloves, shovels, trowels and litter grabbers. We’ll provide instructions, planting maps, compost bags for weeds and litter bags for trash.

Will Little at Cortona Cafe is offering hot or cold tea for us during the afternoon. Then there’s beer and pizza at Central Cinema at 4:30-5pm-ish as your thank you, along w/ a showing of The Secret Garden. So go home, wash up, get your spouse, partner, kids and come back for a party!!

“This project is funded in part by a Neighborhoods Matching Fund award of the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.” Many thanks to DON, Keith Geller Landscape Architect, Will Little Cortona Cafe, Allison Cummings & John Stewart plant counters extraordinaire & Kevin & Clinton Central Cinema. And huge thanks to Jean Tinnea, without whom this project wouldn’t be happening.

  1. Take as many weeds home as you want :) Saves having to haul them off to get composted.
