Sunday
Draw 7 Park Cleanup
10 a.m-12 p.m., A little elbow grease
Draw 7 Park
Assembly Square
While we may be well on our way to repressing the memories of this winter, the snow is not quite done with us yet. All the snow cleared from the streets had to go somewhere, and in Somerville, a lot of it went into Draw 7 Park. The big pile has yet to completely melt, and where it’s receded, it’s left a plethora of debris and trash in its wake. Join Groundwork Somerville this Sunday for a massive cleanup of the park (sponsored by Assembly Row). This is part of a monthly outdoor maintenance project series led by Groundwork Somerville. Register for Sunday here, and for future projects, check out their site.
