The Word Around the Ward
Ever walk around the ward and notice people’s gardens? I spied a cool container setup on Glenwood and was given a great tour of another garden space on Saturday! Of course, we also have the Ward 5 chickens too that seem to be doing great. Do you have a green oasis that you want to show off? Email me pictures and what species you’re growing.
Magoun Square is looking good these days, but I wish truck drivers would be careful of the hanging plants from the light poles. I reported the second one, in a month, that was on the sidewalk after being knocked down. Big thanks to the DPW for their quick response in picking it up and keeping them well watered.
Yes, I saw a needle on Lowell Street Monday night and called the SPD to come pick it up. Thanks to the responding officer and dispatcher for their help!
A summer clean-up of Magoun Square will be held on tonight from 5:30-7:30pm and will cover the area between CVS and Partridge Avenue (including Henry Hanson Park). The last clean-up effort was very successful with 13 participants and 27 bags of mulch. Can't make it? We have one more planned in August! Sign up if you're around!
Somerville Local First will host a SummerVille Cool-down at Olde Magoun's Saloon on July 26th from 5:30 to 7:30 and will feature a couple of local breweries, as well as, a diverse food spread courtesy of Chef Howie Haywood! This will be everyone's opportunity to meet the new Executive Director, Kat Rutkin. Get your tickets!
ArtBeat is this weekend! Are you going? I'll be there...I do travel outside of Ward 5 every now again ;)
Please send along pictures and stories of your experience. I'll be tweeting on the @Ward5Online handle while I'm there.
