Planting Work Party at SEUL

SE Uplift is building a pocket-park at 36th and Main, and would love to have help putting in some native plants!  For a few short hours we’ll plant a portion of the property and spread some mulch.  If you have some time to help turn what used to be an unmaintained grass patch into a beautiful native landscape, please stop by. The planting will take place from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Nov. 5 at 3534 SE Main.

Contact Tim at (503) 232-0010 ext. 313 or for more information.
