Work Party: Sunday, June 11, 9am-Noon

This Friends of Kirke Park Work Party will get the park all spiffy for the Sustainable Ballard Edible Garden Tour on June 24, which begins here at Kirke. We’ll also get the playground area in good shape for the busy summer season. Some perennial weeds (morning glory, buttercup, etc.) are trying to get a foothold along the perimeter of the park, so we’ll tackle those as well. Thank you for helping keep our park beautiful!

Sunday, June 11

9am to Noon

Please bring gloves and garden tools if you can (we’ll have some to loan if you need to borrow).

Celebrate Solstice! Wed June 21, 5pm-Dusk

Join us for a summer solstice celebration on Wednesday, June 21! Beginning at 5pm, we’ll bring out a grill at the house across the street from the park — for those who bring their own grillable food — and we’ll also provide fixins to roast s’mores over the fire! Festivities will wrap up at dusk; it’s a school night, after all.
