Bloomfield Vacant Lot Transformation with Love Your Block!

May 13, 2017 @ 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

We are postponing our Love Your Block event day until Saturday, May 13, 9am-1pm. While we’d hoped that the weather forecast would clear up, that hasn’t been the case and we don’t want our volunteers digging in mud or working in unsafe or miserable conditions.

In April we planted 6 trees, removed 7 tires, laid new topsoil, and added a street light to these two vacant lots, former dumping grounds and area of all manner of illegal activity. Join us to finish the transformation by planting perennials, spreading mulch, and placing landscaping rocks. We need at least 20 volunteers to complete this work!

On May 6, join us to transform two unsightly vacant lots at the corner of Mathilda and Aloe Streets! We’ll be rolling boulders into place, planting perennials and a few annuals, and generally cleaning up and making that corner look FAB and less like an illegal dumping spot/mud pit. BONUS: If we have enough volunteers, we’ll be heading out to weed and clean litter from Liberty Avenue in preparation for the following day’s MARATHON PARTY!
