The King Neighborhood Association’s ‘Green King’ project — sponsored by NECN — is nearing completion. On Saturday, Nov. 9, volunteers added compost and scores of native plants to a strip of the King Neighborhood Facility parking lot that had been ‘depaved’ in October. The last remaining step is to install parking bumpers to keep cars from driving into the new bioswale, which will capture stormwater and naturally infiltrate it into the ground.
The project is expected to reduce flooding and standing water in the parking lot, and to provide a more healthful and beautiful environment for the King Farmers’ Market, which takes place on Sundays, May-November. Click here to donate!
