Lawn Transformations at Sanislo School

We have a workparty this coming Saturday, March 28 at Sanislo School wetland, near the playground entrance on 18th Ave SW.
Seattle Public School District is participating in the “lawn transformation” grant funded by King County Wastewater Treatment Division in an effort to reduce air pollution from lawn mowing, pollution that taints rainwater and bio-accumulates in salmon, orcas, and us.  We’ll have one additional workparty in the planting season next winter to plant native evergreen plants that help intercept winter stormwater.
We’ll be sheetmulching to eradicate the grass, laying cardboard and spreading woodchips. Thank you to Seattle Public Schools for reducing their mowing liability.

Date: Saturday March 28, 2015
Time: 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM  (Join for an hour or all day)
Where:  Playground entrance at Sanislo School Wetland;  1639 18th Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98106.  Between South Seattle Community College and Home Depot on Delridge SW in West Seattle (Bus # 125, 120, or 128).  Meet at 18th Ave SW entrance to the playground.
What to bring: We have gloves and tools (write your name on any personal tools).  Wear long sleeves/pants, closed-toed shoes/boots, hat/rain/sun protection.  Bring personal food/water/bottle.  Snacks and water provided.
