Please come out this Saturday for Boston's first ever De-Paving Party (or
at least the first one we've heard of)! We will be pulling up asphalt from
two yards in this working-class, multi-ethnic neighborhood near Stop and
Stop in the Hyde Square/Jackson Square area.  From parking lots to
paradise, we will help the Gay Head Green Block neighbors make their block
more resilient in the face of climate change. Make room for gardens, trees,
and recreation space. Help reduce urban heat island effect and storm water
flooding, and have fun too!

Saturday, July 13, 9am till 4pm
13 Gay Head Street, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

We'll have lunch in a neighbor's yard, so feel free to come hungry or bring
a dish to share. Kids are welcome to play in a neighbor's yard or if
they're old enough to be safe, they can work with a responsible adult
partner.

Please RSVP so we know how many volunteers are coming:
