Taking It to the Streets!

Tired of having the northern entrances to beautiful Mill Valley spoiled by litter and weeds, four ladies mounted their own clean-up effort.  Peggy Katcher, Margo Kirkpatrick, Joan Murray and Jill Young collected 24 big orange bags of litter along with stacks of weeds and two abandoned shopping carts from East Blithedale near the freeway, Redwood Highway Frontage Road and Hamilton Avenue. They got the job done on Friday before the next round of rain. Robert Zadnik of Mill Valley Public Works provided the bags and arranged for the disposal of the trash.

Anyone interested in joining in on the next clean-up should contact Margo Kirkpatrick at margomv@comcast.net.

This is a great effort. Thank you. Do you think that we might be able to plant some flowers in the median strip from Highway 101 down to the entrance at Tower Road? I tried to do this a few years back but the chain of command made it very difficult.

Purchase a bag or two of seeds from the local nursery and just dump it in the area and Mother Nature will take care of the rest. No need for permits or permissions, at least the last time I checked nature just took care of itself.

Great Job! Maybe next time there can be 6 people, then 8. . . . and it grows. Let us know when you want to do it again. Good work!
