Sustainable NE Seattle is coordinating a Painting Party on Thursday, September 29th from 2 to 4 PM at the Hunter Tree Farm site, to paint the benches.
The Gathering Place at Hunter Tree Farm was most recently used for the Wedgwood Community Picnic on September 17th. This wonderful community resource is ours to use with permission of the Hunter family who own the lot for their annual Christmas tree sales.
Volunteers from the community, coordinated by Sustainable NE Seattle, work together to maintain the amenities at the Gathering Place, such as the benches. Everyone who would like to gather for a Painting Party is asked to bring housepainting brushes and come on Thursday, September 29th, from 2 to 4 PM. Bring water and snacks to share, too.
Update: All of the benches got painted! The benches will be left out for use through the month of October, then will be stored over the winter.
