You’ve probably heard of Adopt-A-Street; in North Delridge, a project under way could be dubbed Adopt-An-Alley. Neighbors have been working to clean up the alley behind Delridge Library, thinking that, among other potential benefits, if it doesn’t look like a dumping ground, it’ll stop being used as one. So they’re gathering again today, 11 am-1 pm, to remove more garbage and dig out blackberry stumps to keep them from growing back. They’ve procured bags and gloves from the Adopt-A-Street program and are planning to check out some tools from the new West Seattle Tool Library (which is open Saturdays 9 am-2 pm, more info here). Karrie Kohlhaas‘s announcement notes:

Last weekend some neighborhood kids came through on their bikes and helped out, learned about what we were doing…several people thanked us, one man said now it will be safe for his son to walk through the alley to the library, another person said they wanted to do this for so long but couldn’t do it alone…We can get it
done together. Join us!

The alley is between 25th SW and Delridge, between Brandon and Findlay (map). If you have your own gloves, shovel and/or dirt-loosening tool, bring it along.
