Point Breeze green space - No updates right now
We are supporting a petition being circulated by SOSDOG. We are helping to collect signatures in support of a space restricted to dogs off of Washington Ave. Idea: work with Pit Stop dog treat dispenses and The Pharmacy to host a fundraiser at the appropriate time?
Julia secured 50 No Dumping decals from the Delaware Estuary - they are quick and easy to apply. We need to decide where and when to apply these in the neighborhood.
- Dickinson Grove (4)
- 17th & Manton (4)
Will solicit via the facebook page for suggestions of other blocks they should be put on.
Green, then Clean Space - Jesse & Jackie will start the project at Dickinson Grove. We have erected a dog waste sign from the city. It appears to be helping curb the left over waste. We may paint the fence and will plant flowers to encourage use by neighbors.
We will also plant flowers in the large cement planters around the neighborhood in hopes to deter the use of them as trash cans.
Cassandra has donated wild flower seeds and she suggested sprinkling hot pepper around theplanting to keep the squirrels out while they're germinating.
SPR/Circular distribution - we are working with the trash think tank to collaborate with other civics to garner support/attention from the councilman.
Joe has emailed the trash think tank organizers and we are awaiting their reply.
Neighborhood Walks - Next walk is Tuesday, June 3rd at 7pm, we will meet at 18th & Washington and walk South. This is a great opportunity to meet new neighbors, get some exercise, check out the beautiful plantings many have, etc., etc.
Pruning Club - We are actively gathering a list of trees which need pruning. Joe will be our pruning guide and will teach those interested.
Tree applications - are there businesses or homes in the area we want to have trees? Places for us to solicit?
Child's School project/block clean up - Jesse is confirming date with school
