Helping hands and green thumbs are needed this Saturday, June 25th at 10am at the Pocket Park at South and Walter Streets across from Longfellow House and Green Tea. Earlier this spring the daffodils were blooming and lovely. But the weeds are growing and the pocket park needs tending. Come meet your neighbors LANA is doing a work session to weed and plant perennials Saturday morning, June 25th at 10 am. Join us. If you have an extra hoe, rake or shovel, bring yourself and a tool if you have one. We are also looking for donations of perennials. If you are thinning your garden, or found that you have one too many perennials, please drop them off tomorrow morning, so we can add them to the park at South & Walter. Or email LANA at LongfellowArea@gmail.com. Thanks. See you Saturday.

On Saturday, December 11, 2021, the community came out to celebrate building affordable housing while preserving the wetlands. Thanks especially to Mayor Wu, Councilors Matt O’Malley and Arroyo, Senator Representative Nika Elugardo, and Habit for Humanity.
We are kicking off our celebration this Saturday at noon at 108 Walter Street to thank and celebrate our many partners and officials working with us to advance equity and climate resiliency by saving the Roslindale Wetlands and creating four units of affordable home ownership. Invited attendees include Mayor Wu, Councilors O’Malley and Arroyo, State Senator Rush, State Representatives Coppinger and Elugardo, Habitat for Humanity, and others! Join us in celebrating the acquisitions of 104-108 Walter and the Durst parcel, as well as the second anniversary of the Boston Wetlands Ordinance. We also want to thank you for your help and support and making these acquisitions happen. Grassroots neighborhood support is a key to success!
In addition, LANA will be hosting a Roslindale Wetlands 25+1 Walk at 2 pm stepping off from Selwyn & Robken Road.
