Help us clean up 12th Avenue!

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Capitol Hill Housing is working with the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce to plan cleanup work on 12th Avenue as part of The Clean Sweep. The Clean Sweep, a neighborhood street clean that covers Broadway and 12th Avenue, is on Saturday, May 12th from 10am to noon.  Volunteers (that means you!) are invited to gather at Cal Anderson Park at 10am for a pre-clean up breakfast and inspiring speeches from local elected officials.  Everyone will get equipped to clean, put together in teams (you’re welcome to create your own), and sent out to clean up areas. After a few hours hard work, volunteers will gather back at Cal Anderson Park for lunch and musical entertainment.

If you’d like to help us spruce up the 12th Avenue neighborhood, please RSVP with Jennifer Power, Sustainable Communities Assistant, at jpower(at)capitolhillhousing.org.

The Rebirth of Sustainable Capitol Hill

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

After a year of hibernation, Sustainable Capitol Hill is back with a string of Spring meetings focusing on food and the environment.  At the first of these meetings Capitol Hill Housing will give an introduction to our organization and then plunge into a workshop on sustainability and the connections between food systems, stormwater infrastructure, and urban gardening.  The workshop comes thanks to research CHH has done as part of our EcoDistrict Initiative.  Stay tuned for announcements about the release of our EcoDistrict report later this Spring.

The March meeting is just around the corner (Monday).  Details and facebook sign up below.

We’ll start at 6:30pm with a potluck and continue with
the meeting at 7pm.

Hope to see you there!
