Happening now: Gardening, stepping-stone art on Genesee Hill

September 22, 2012 at 1:01 pm | In Gardening, Genesee Hill, How to help, West Seattle news | 1 Comment

Thanks to Bryan and Janet Jones for photos from the grounds of the former Genesee Hill school, where the community gardens are getting some TLC from neighborhood and Seattle Pacific University CityQuest volunteers. That work’s going on till about 2 pm.

But it overlaps with another event you can join in, too – from 1 till 3 pm, make mosaic stepping stones with Bright River Studio artist Terri Goodwin. Just bring “a colorful old plate or tile to break up for the mosaic” and “dress for mess.” You’ll get to keep your finished creation.

ADDED: Afterward, Janet sent out this summary:

Today was a gold star day at the school, with several long-awaited tasks accomplished, as follows:

Four new basketball nets installed
Some playground sweeping
All summer debris transferred to the dumpster
Ivy pulled from the Dakota hedge
Wildlife area tidied
Blackberries trimmed
Wood chips wheelbarrowed to beds – wildlife area and behind play structure
Two and a half trash bags of litter picked up.

Stepping stone art

Thank you one and all!

  1. Wow! The Seattle Pacific student volunteers worked so HARD! They tackled Blackberry and Ivy under difficult conditions, and moved at least a ton of woodchips and tree cuttings. Really great group of people. THank you All! So much was accomplished! Karen/Genesee Garden, the redhead in the photo holding a piece of the dreaded English Ivy.
