Help clean up the 35W sound wall

The Greening Committee is working to keep the lands adjacent to the 35W Sound Barrier Walls cut and tended and few volunteers have been able to keep the lands south of 46th Street along 2nd Avenue mowed. However they have been unable to tend the lands north of 46th Street and they are now “out of control.” New Greening Committee Co-Chair Tim Price is asking that volunteers join him in a 90 minute burst of cutting, weeding, raking and bagging along that stretch of land. There will be two opportunities this Weekend:

1) June 6, Saturday morning 8:00 A.M. – 9:30 A.M. and
2) June 6, Saturday evening 5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

Over time, the Greening Committee will create a work plan with specific dates and times when volunteers can work in teams or individually. The 90 minute ”burst of activity” will aim to mow, rake and bag yard-waste for 1 block with minimal physical effort. Tim will be available at each of those times with bags, rakes, safety cones – allowing us to do our work safely.

Please contact Tim Price if you are available to help out at 612-385-2297 or at

If you are unable to join in but are willing to devote some time any day or time June 4th – Thursday – June 7th – Sunday, let Tim know and he will make sure to get the tools to you to do a “burst” of activity at your time.
