Greening BH – in the ground and in your home

Help put new plantings in the ground…

Saturday 11.22.14 from 9am to noon
Bayview Triangle Planting Party

Bayview Triangle Planting Project

A green work party sponsored by Beacon Arts, Beacon Hill Merchants, Forterra, the Tree Ambassador program… and you! Just grab your gloves and join us by the green triangle just south of the Shell Station at the Beacon Junction anytime between 9am to noon. You will be welcomed and put to work (note there may be cheering when you arrive). Thanks to Forterra for supplying tools and volunteer project lead Marina King for ongoing everything!

Learn more and register for this event online: or simply show up ready to help other community members beautify this central location of our hill.

If you can’t make it on Saturday take a moment to stop in and say thank you to the folks at the Shell Station who have been been doing upkeep, including throwing out trash, cutting down bushes and mulching for the past several years. We hope to bring every little and big effort to boost attention to this area.


 …and greenify your home for the holidays:
