Event description

Description

NOTE (11/5/15):

Because of the boggy ground and ongoing chance of rain, PARD has requested that we postpone our workday to next Saturday, November 14. They will not be able to arrange mulch delivery for this Saturday.

Thank you everyone who has signed up, and I hope you might be able to come next Saturday instead. If you are busy this Saturday, here's your second chance to come!

-----------------

Please join us in the park on what we hope will be a beautiful, cool fall morning to give Brentwood Park a little TLC. Since the fall of 2009, Friends of Brentwood Park has hosted semi-annual community workdays in the park, with each workday building on the success of the previous workdays.

Our neighborhood park adopter group continues to work closely with Austin Parks and Recreation and the Austin Parks Foundation to make Brentwood Park a more beautiful, clean and friendly neighborhood gathering place now and for the future. The most important component of the success equation is community participation and we hope to see that again on November 7th.

Please come and give us just a few hours of time. The more folks who come, the bigger impact we can have and the more we impress upon PARD that this community loves its park. We promise you will have fun and maybe make a new friend or two!

Each project will have a project leader to coordinate volunteer efforts. Here’s what we have planned:
* Park Sign Bed, Pool Bed, and Butterfly Bed on Arroyo Seco - weeding, cleanup, tending the plantings, repair edging
* Mulching Trees - We will be mulching heritage trees and others as needed
* Volleyball Court - Clean up, border maintenance
* Waterboxxes - Remove and replace as needed

All volunteers need to stop by the volunteer table at the pavilion to check-in.
Park along Arroyo Seco Street on the east side of the park.
The bathrooms at the pool will be open.

What to wear:
* Closed-toe shoes required!
* A hat, sunglasses and sunscreen are highly recommended.
* Long sleeves and long pants advised.

What to bring:
* A water bottle and a coffee mug – we’ll have water and coffee, but to keep waste down, bring your own fluids container(s).
* Work gloves

We need tools! If you are bringing tools please mark them clearly with your name and phone number so we can make sure all tools get back to their owners.

Tools we’ll need:
* Wheelbarrows (if you have, please bring! we never have enough)
* Rigid rakes for spreading mulch
* Pitchforks
* Shovels
* Weeding tools
* Garden forks
* Spades
* Trowels
* Pruners
* Shears

Please pre-register!! It really helps us with planning.
Children must be accompanied by an adult who will work alongside them.
Rain date for this event: November 14th
If it’s cold, we’re working.
If it’s damp, we’re working.
If it’s raining more than a fine mist or sleeting or hailing, we’re not working.
IF WE DECIDE TO POSTPONE DUE TO THE WEATHER: we will send an email announcement to all registered participants plus the Brentwood and Crestview listservs and also post on our Facebook page.

Thanks to all of you for your continued support and participation!
