Green the block, stand for Van

Tomorrow (9/11) is National Service Day, and Green for All, a Van Jones organization, is calling for Green the Block events around the country. While no event in Alameda is a registered Green the Block event this year (maybe next), there IS an unregistered gardening party on Calhoun Street, between Mound and Court, from 3 to 5 pm, to clean, mulch, and beautify a strip of weeds next to Krusi Park. You can don your work gloves and come pull some weeds with us, as well as bring and plant drought tolerant flowers. Or you can hold your own greening event. If you do, the Lorax would love a note about it.

That would be a good way to show Van Jones’s spirit and ideas have taken root.
