Work began Saturday on the proposed site of the Midvale Community Garden located on 192nd Street and the Interurban Trail.

The site is full of blackberries and other invasive plants

Local community members with the Echo Lake Neighborhood Association partnered with the City of Shoreline Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department to begin removing invasive vegetation and garbage from the site.

People who had been sleeping there left behind garbage

Several community partners are working together in hopes of turning the site into a community garden and interpretive area for Shoreline residents to grow vegetables and flowers for the community.

Piles of cuttings await pickup and it's a little easier
to see the property from the street

More information can be found on the Facebook group "Midvale Community Garden."
