“Take pride in your Shaw/U Street corridor!

Every year, volunteers get together to clean up, plant, & mulch the 1/4 miles of street gardens that are part of historic Vermont Avenue, in Washington, DC.

This is a great way to meet your neighbors and take pride in the beauty of a vital part of our city. We need about 30 people to participate, more is better.

NO EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED. Training, tools, & other support will be provided. Free breakfast, lunch, drinks and door prizes included.

Try to arrive as close to 9:00 am as possible for training. Meet at the African American Civil War Memorial (U Street & Vermont)

We’ll also need about 3 coordinators to welcome volunteers and get them started if they arrive later.

TOOLS & PROTECTION: Many will be provided, but if you’ve got ’em, please bring ’em, ideally with your name on ’em: gloves, smal trowels, pointed or square-edged shovels, kneeling pads & wheelbarrows. Bright clothes, hat & sun block also recommended.

Request for care: To avoid compacting the soil & damaging plant roots, please do not walk through the beds during the year.

Event coordinated by Jeffrey Willis”
