Join Young Members (20s and 30s/young at heart) for a depaving party! We have volunteered at these events before and they're always really fun and different. We will be using sledgehammers, pickaxes, and wheelbarrows to tear up asphalt from a "yard" in Somerville to allow the property owners to use the former lot for green space! This helps to soak up rain, make room for plants to support pollinator species, and decrease the urban heat island effect.
There is typically a potluck following the work so feel free to bring snacks to share, along with your own water bottle/sunscreen. Construction tools and protective gear will be provided. I'm not sure what the parking situation will be, so I would recommend taking public transportation or biking/walking if possible. Heavy rain will cancel; rain date 5/19.
