Celebrating What We Have

Wellington X decided to start out the summer season in a spirit of celebration.

Last weekend we hosted a plant swap in Doug Fluhrer Park that exceeded all expectations. People brought whole tarp-loads of perennials and flats of tomatoes — others left with new treasures. We had nothing left at the end. We met new people. And we celebrated the lovely green parkspace, habitat to plants, people, turtles.

This weekend we set up a sequence of signs on the K&P Trail during the launch day, just in behind Quattrocchi’s, and talked with scads of people who were surprised and shocked to hear that the City proposes to build a road having just built such a promising trail. We served lemonade and basked in the sun, surrounded by birds and newly applied grass seed. Down behind the legion, cycling enthusiasts traded tips and watched a softball game.

 

It was such an affirmative and lovely start to the summer. Here’s hoping that now that the K&P is open, more people from all parts of town will want to keep this corridor of the city’s transportation and recreation infrastructure car-free.
