The Meadowbrook Community Gardens and Orchards (MCGO) site is made up of local community and Seattle Parks who together, act as primary stakeholders. Each Community Center also finds direction from their Advisory Council, consisting of community and Seattle Parks staff. This seven acre site also relies on outside volunteer groups to help support ongoing care.
Enter service days like the one Liberty Mutual offers every year. Much mundane and significant work comes from these important engagements. This May, 3 days with Liberty Mutual employees made significant headway in to the important work that is MCGO.
Work in the Edible Hedge all 3 days enabled this particular site to get a run at ‘buttercup’ and dandelion infestation. There also is a new trail entry (mid-hedge) here. It is also now home to blue mason bee box prominently displayed, working and facing southeast. The group also committed to focusing on the North Orchard trail head and East Orchard weed removal.
With good weather and a good vibe, we appreciate this great group of people. Besides sporting a neatly designed t-shirt for the day, all came prepared to help us all make a difference in the community. A great day of service from Liberty Mutual employees. A great ‘Serve with Liberty’ event; we appreciate it very much.
