Neighborhood volunteers put their skills and grit together on St. Paddy’s Day (March 17) to wipe out some blackberries that were beginning a takeover of Lake Washington Boulevard by East Huron Street.
A truck-and-a-half of weeds were extracted or cut back, opening up a new area to plant with native vegetation later in the year and staving off blackberry dominance along the Boulevard.
The hearty volunteers included Diane Morris, Jan Solsa, Sally Wagner, Carlos Arriola, Tracy Bier and John Barber. Later, Myra and Larry Faust came along to help with the wind-up. All-and-all it was a time to enjoy working together on a beautiful early spring day.
