Volunteers Needed For Lilac Planting Party Sept 22

Golden Valley’s Envision Connection Project Bridge Builders invite you to the fifth annual Lilac Planting Party Saturday, Saturday, Sept 22, 8:30 am to 1 pm. The City is looking for anyone 16 or older who wants to help with the grassroots beautification project.

Volunteers can register starting at 8:30 am in the parking lot of 9010 Olson Memorial Hwy in Golden Valley. The planting will take place from 9 am to 1 pm on the north side of Hwy 55 near the ramp to northbound Hwy 169. The event will conclude with a celebration lunch from 1 to 2 pm back at the registration location.

Check out the landscaping planted in the first four years, from Hwy 169 east to Douglas Dr, and resolve to be part of this year’s event. Come on your own, or gather a group from your neighborhood, church, business, or club to form a team, then see the fruits of your labor beautifying the community for years to come.

Register online or with Sandy Werts at 763-512-2314 or swerts@goldenvalleymn.gov. Volunteers will need to bring gloves and a shovel.

The Lilac Planting Project is a collaboration between Bridge Builders, the City of Golden Valley, and the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s Community Roadside Landscaping Partnership Program. Bridge Builders is a community organization that gives individuals and groups a way to connect with others who share similar interests and then mobilize them to engage in beneficiary projects.
