Green King project removes asphalt, makes way for native plants


On Saturday, Oct. 26, volunteers from the King neighborhood joined Depave and other partners to remove a strip of asphalt from the parking lot on the south side of King School. On Nov. 9th, volunteers will add native plants to the de-paved area.

The project — funded by the Community Watershed Stewardship Program and sponsored by NECN — is expected to alleviate flooding issues in the parking lot, which is home to the King Farmers’ Market on Sundays, May-November. Check out video of the de-paving below, and visit the Green King project online for more info.

Pitch in for the volunteer planting party on Nov. 9th, 10am-1pm, at NE 7th Ave. & Wygant St.
