Urban Sparks Work Parties
Urban Sparks’ work parties are fun opportunities to spend some time with generous people doing good work. Get some fresh air and tidy up the neighborhood with great people.
Sometimes we broadcast a work party to our whole email list, but you can be one of the self-nominated volunteers that hears about every opportunity. Join our email list and mention volunteering.
- NW 46th Street Adopt-a-Street clean-up and Mayor Nickels’ Clean Seattle work day in Fremont.
- Earth Share of Washington’s Day-in-the-Park, Golden Gardens
- In 2005, we led a team of 22 volunteers to remove hundreds of pounds of ivy and spread mulch to keep it from coming back.
- In 2004, nine of us removed lots of scotch broom, mustard, blackberries, and ten tall black locust trees.
Annual Garden Concert at Bradner Garden
Tiana found our flyer and asked for help in creating Bradner Garden’s first outdoor concert. We brainstormed with her over the phone and told her about Seattle’s Department of Neighborhoods’ Small Sparks grant program. Tiana got the grant, found musicians, gathered neighbors, had posters and postcards made, then held a fantastic summer evening concert. She did a wonderful job of jumping into a first project. It was a thrill for us to take a tiny part in this first concert at Bradner Garden. Bradner Garden is a wonderfully mature P-Patch and neighborhood park that was overdue for such an honor.What are Others’ Projects?
