Come join us this Sunday from 10-2 for our weekly beauty treatment of the West Central Park. We weed and mulch, mow and pick up litter each week so that this little corner of the world is clean and safe for the whole community to share! Our weekly work parties are open to all and each and every hour you volunteer is carefully recorded and reported to the IRS as an in kind donation. We really appreciate your efforts!

Look for our table at the upcoming Great Yards Get Together at Heritage Park, September 10th from 10-2. We will be sharing some of the unique gardening and permaculture techniques that are used at WCP. We will have take home instructions for building your own insect hotel, crevice garden, hugelkulture bed, permaculture garden, rain garden and natural bee hive building! The event is hosted by the Stream Team and will be chock full of info about how to make your yard a better place!

Also that day at West Central Park, Heather Wood will be offering her very next free workshop on natural bee keeping. The class will be at the south end of the Park and will focus on natural hive building, and what hive resonates for you? All type of hive construction will be discussed and explained from the traditional to the avant-garde!

Mark your calendar for the United Way Day of Caring Kick Off Breakfast at West Central Park on October 1st at 8 am. Phoebe’s Pastry Cafe will be catering yummy breakfast treats and coffee to give a great start to the day. All the volunteers will gather at the Park for breakfast then splinter off to their various service tasks. Get registered with Ariel Rogers of the United Way at ARogers@unitedway-thurston.org .

Then also for your calendar, keep the very next day, Sunday, October 2nd from 12-4 for our annual neighborhood Harvest Fest! There will be workshops, a veggie swap table and the best stone soup you will ever have! Bring items for the soup and the veggie swap table and come for the workshops on mushroom cultivating, bee keeping and more!

Made up of caring Park neighbors, the WCP Board is in charge of all policy and planning for the Park. The Park Board is looking for two new board members. Stop by our Sunday work party from 10-2 to find out more.

See you around the Westside!
