Final work parties at Green Lake Elementary School‘s new Olallie Native Garden (2400 N 65th St) will be held on Saturdays and Sundays over the weekends of Nov. 6-7 and Nov. 13-14, 2010.

The school celebrated the grand opening of the garden on Oct. 2.

“These are rain or shine events,” Monica O’Neill of the Green Lake Garden Club told us. “We hope people can make it to at least one of those days if not more. We will be out there from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., so stop by anytime.  Bring yourselves, the kids, a water bottle, and garden tools and gloves if you can and help us complete the vision!”

Volunteers will plant native plants, remove unwanted plants, and install edging around the beds.  Boy Scout Troop 125 and Cub Scout Pack 152 will also be there, installing two new rammed earth benches and a game table.

The project is funded in part by a Neighborhood Matching Fund award from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.
