Second annual Alice Ball Park weeding project this Saturday

Join your neighbors as a community steward this Saturday for an hour or two of weeding and clean up of planting beds in Alice Ball Park, on Greenwood Ave N. across from the Greenwood Library.

Bring your gloves and weeding tools – and your mask. The Friends of Alice Ball Park will supply buckets and bins, and some sanitizing supplies.

Due to social distancing, volunteer opportunities will be limited. Please send an email to Bill Farmer at farmerbill3@gmail.com if you’d like to join.

The park is named after Alice Ball, an African American chemist who developed the “Ball Method” that was the most effective treatment for leprosy in the early 1900s. Ball was born in Seattle, Washington and studied chemistry the University of Washington.
