The Yellow Bike Hilltop Restoration Project

Greetings one and all.

The Yellow Bike project operates a community bike shop at 1216 Webberville road, in Council District 1 and the East MLK neighborhood planning area. We got a grant from the Mayors office, called Love Your Block, to revitalize our front yard.  We want to make sure that this public space is both appreciated by our neighbors, but is also a healthy, sustainable landscape.  To make that happen, we are hosting a series of work days in October that will make the space more comfortable (building benches and tables) and beautiful (planting, seeding and mulching).  Finally, we will have an open house party in November to make sure everyone can come and appreciate the amazing work we have done together.
