Event description

Description

The Emerging Planners Group is teaming up with Depave for their "Greening the M & M Swap Meet" event. We’ll be ripping up small portions of pavement and doing lots of other landscaping to improve the Market with rain gardens, native plantings, trees, and more. Additional elements of the project include: a permeable patio for outdoor vendor stalls, a cafe pergola, three beautiful murals, and new signage.

About the Swap MeetStarted in 2000 by Jaime Miranda and his family, the M&M Swap Meet is one of the region’s oldest authentic Latino markets. It is home to dozens of Latino vendors offering a wide range of Central and South American products and cuisine, as well as various repair and business services. Read more about this unique community place in this article from the Oregonian: M&M Swap Meet brings a taste of Mexico to Hillsboro and on the M&M website.

The event takes place on Saturday, October 7th. Orientation is at 8:45 am. The event will last from 9am - 3pm, and volunteers can choose to do one or both shifts (9am to noon, and noon to 3pm). Please RSVP through this eventbrite application. If you sign up through this eventbrite, you do not have to also RSVP through depave's website. More information can be found about the event here, including what to wear: http://depave.org/event/mandm/
