Our story earlier tonight about the upcoming 2nd annual West Seattle Bee Festival mentioned Keep High Point Green. Tonight we have another update on community members of all ages getting involved with that project – courtesy of Deborah Vandermar, High Point Neighborhood Association president:

Volunteers worked all weekend weeding and mulching in High Point as part of the Keep High Point Green Project: Saturday at Bataan Park with Garden Mentor Amy Hughes and Sunday at Commons Park (in the rain) with Garden Mentor Kimberley Leeper of Mariposa Naturescapes.

Members of the FC Juba soccer team worked both days!

They helped put up the tent, weeded and mulched. They also gathered kids from High Point Mosque’s Religious Studies class and helped them learn how to do edging and weeding . Everyone enjoyed the great tools provided by the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Matching Fund grant.

As Deborah explained in this report two weeks ago, KHPG “evolved last year as a community response to High Point’s need for weed control and its commitment to sending only clean water to Longfellow creek by avoiding the use of herbicides.”

  1. Blog should know that all HP homeowners do not support the no herbicide stance of this group. Many think their association fees would be better spent using herbicides responsibly, and that there is no “mission” at High Point to avoid using legal weed control products.
