The Common Acre Intergenerational Work Parties
Join The Common Acre, as we expand one acre of land at The Green Line, and prepare the land for a Camas Prairie.  The Green Line is a community stewardship project taking place in the transmission corridor of Seattle City Light in upper Rainier Beach. This is the space under high-voltage power lines. Previously, it was primarily inhabited by invasive weeds.

During this intergenerational work party series, you will learn how to prepare the land for a Camas Prairie.

July 10th - Prepare Nesting Spaces for Native bees.
-Along with restoring Native plants, we focus on restoring Native bee habitats at The Green Line. Native bees build their nests underground. Before we weed, mulch, and suppress invasive plants we are going to spend this work party building nesting sites in the soil. Join us for this hands-on educational skill share.

August 13th - Removing Invasive weeds around the Native bee nesting spaces, and mulch around the nests.
-The Common Acre uses no-till methods to prepare the land for planting. Join us for this hands-on educational work party on no-till weeding as we prepare 1 acre of land for a Camas prairie.

September 10th 2022 - Water, irrigation management, and land management in restoration spaces.

-This is the 1st series of intergenerational work parties, that are a part of a larger series we are inviting the community to join. Stay tuned for a series of work parties and an intergenerational conference we will host in the fall to plant camas bulbs at The Green Line.

Snack and supplies will be provided at this work party. Please bring a lunch, and a pair of gardening gloves!
These work parties are open to all, however, we are going to prioritize 1) Native people who identify as Coast Salish and 2) BIPOC who live and are members of one of the South Seattle communities. We are prioritizing people from these communities and Nations because: 1) The Green Line is located in South Seattle and we prioritize building community with BIPOC, who are historically marginalized from connecting with land in Seattle. 2) We are prioritizing Coast Salish people because we are occupying Coast Salish territories and they are the stewards of this land; and the original and ongoing stewards of camas prairies in our region.
