On Friday, May 14th, Seattle Community Court community service workers will be clearing the weeds and walkways in the “Butterfly Garden” adjcadent to the Garfield Community Center building (23rd and Cherry, east side). This will ready the garden for the community center participants to begin their Spring Planting!
This project was generated by a member of the Colman Neighbors Association, who noticed the overgrown weeds and contacted Community Court to determine whether we could bring a crew to help. Of course, as a CD resident and community supporter, I agreed (I am also the Program Coordinator of the Seattle Community Court program)
We will begin work at 10 and complete at 2, with a 30 minute lunch at 11:45.
After 2PM, we’ll head out into the neighborhood for a friendly litter pick up until 3:30.
Community Court partners with community stakeholders to identify projects (on public property) that need attention, and we strive to make it happen.
In the spirit of community collaboration, please let me know, before Friday early AM, where we should focus our litter pickup- within 5 or 6 bocks of the Community Center at 23rd and Cherry, along sidewalks and parking strips.
Come by to visit, if you can, and thank the workers for their contribution. I will be there also.
