North City Neighborhood Association Happy Hour

Posted on to Events (Updated )

When
Thursday, August 12,
Where
Monka Brewing
17211 15th Ave NE
Shoreline, WA 98155

Join us Thursday, August 12 for a casual meetup outdoors at the Monka Brewing Co. There's no formal agenda – we simply want to meet with neighbors and catch up.

The North City Neighborhood Association has been using the COVID lockdown period as a time to re-focus our efforts. We've created a board structure, shored up our legal standing, and are looking forward to building a vibrant organization that can help build community in our growing neighborhood.

Stop by to say hello, support a local business, and learn about some of our plans for 2021 and beyond!

PS: The need for food remains great in our City, and Hopelink is serving more people than ever. The City of Shoreline is coordinating food drive efforts with a Can Castle Contest. We will accept any donations at the meetup event and bring them to the Food Drive at City Hall.


Weeding Help Needed

Posted on to News

There used to be a fair amount of horsetail (equisetum) growing in the Gateway planters. Since we've replanted them, it doesn’t want to go away without a fight.

Digging or pulling the horsetail out is not practical. It is impossible to get all the roots — any bits left will continue to grow. The best approach is to keep snipping of any shoots it sends up. That depletes the roots of energy, eventually doing them in.

If you happen to be by the planter and see some horsetail, help us out and cut off any shoots!

Also, remember that we can use help watering, too!


Watering Help Needed!

Posted on to News

Please help us water the new plantings at the North City Gateway (NE 175th and 15th NE)! They need to be watered twice a day through the summer hot season.

To volunteer to water the plants, sign up here.

Instructions & Notes

There are 2 high planter boxes as well as the lower area beneath the North City sign.

Water jugs Please bring your own water, 5 gallons at the minimum. Gallon jugs with caps work well. A watering can or a bucket in a box will prevent it from toppling over in your car.

As long as the Animal Medical Center parking lot is not full, we have permission to park there while watering since watering won't take much time.

Thank you!
