A group of Mill District residents had a (legal) "Weed Party" over the weekend. They filled 22 huge bags of weeds pulled from the neglected areas surrounding the parking lot across from the Mill City Museum. This included the dog run on 2nd Street South and along the Park Avenue side. No small task considering the sweltering heat.
In addition to their hard work, they pitched in the bags and equipment needed to get the job done and cleaned up.
Thank you to Dana Kirkemo and Erica Wiltshire for sending us these pictures. Could this be the start of a trend? Erica mentioned starting a small gardening group to keep the clean ups happening. Drop her a line at email@example.com if you're interested. I am! :)
Back to looking the way it was meant to!
