You may recall our post on the Green Seattle Day earlier this month – it was part of an ongoing effort to revitalize the Southwest Queen Anne Greenbelt by clearing ivy and planting over 200 native trees and shrubs. The event rallied roughly 35 people on November 3rd (thank you, volunteers!) and the next step is prepping for 400+ trees that will be planted in January and February. Plus, if you like eradicating ivy, that task is on the list too, as well as mulching and creating more survival rings.
So, grab your clippers and gloves and sign up for this Saturday’s event at the Southwest Queen Anne Greenbelt. You’ll need to dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, and make sure you have long sleeves and pants if you’re up to working with blackberry removal. If you don’t have gloves or tools, just let the coordinator know via your RSVP, and they’ll be provided for you.
And, a heads up to save the date – the next step in rehabbing the greenbelt is planting live Christmas trees left over from the holidays, so mark the morning of January 12th on your calendar, more details to follow.
- What: SW Queen Anne Greenbelt – mulch, prep, ivy removal
- Where: W. Lee and Elliott Ave W., park behind Super Supplements, 1154 Elliott Ave W

Note: please RSVP so the coordinator can allot the appropriate amount of extra gloves, tools and mulch.
