Couple of weekend things

Several communities near and in Shaw will be having clean ups. In the Truxton part of Shaw on the 22nd is the Bates Area Clean Up to take place between 10AM and 1PM. One may gather at 1st and P. Now the thing about this clean up is you can join a group and clean up, over at 1st and P and work your way from that point. Or you can clean up your own street, sidewalk, front yard, whatever. The idea is to clean up and beautify the neighborhood.
From Anita:
Dear Neighbors,
This is a friendly reminder that our individual undivided attention is needed in front of our homes, the sidewalks, curbs and gutter, alleyways, treeboxes and flower gardens. Additionally, we can do "first-hand observation about the appearance and safety features requiring service in our community" -- areas missing grass, broken sidewalks, overrun tree boxes, inoperative fire hydrants, etc. Lets join together in the Neighborhood Clean up by giving whatever amount of time you can spare to helping to keep our community clean, safe and a great place to live for all.


Since I had mentioned canning this week and since I have a novice's idea of what I'm doing, may I suggest the canning lecture at the Historical Society (801 K Street, NW) at 1PM (yeah you can do it right after cleaning the community). Specifically it's called Family Urban Gardening: Cooking & Preserving Summer Bounties.

It'd be great if info from the canning lecture made its way online.

home/community gardeners might be interested in this survey:

The Cooperative Extension Service is currently surveying gardeners to assess the pest control strategies being used in the District. We hope to get a ward by ward break down of pest control techniques being used, and to assess the need for future training based on the data generated. If you live in Washington, D.C., please take the time to click on the link below and fill out the survey. :) Unfortunately, the survey is only open to District residents and people gardening at a community garden located in within the city limits.
