Irish Hill Cleanup—Need Volunteers!

Saturday, April 23 . 9am to Noon

Meet at Irish Hill Park.  Cooper & Lexington Rd

The Irish Hill Neighborhood Association, in partnership with the Mayor’s “Give a Day” initiative, the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Brightside, is holding our spring neighborhood cleanup on April 26th from 9am until noon. Join us and students and families from SBTS as we de-litter Irish Hill. Plenty of trash bags and gloves will be provided. If you have rakes, shovels or brooms, please bring them with you. Accompanied kids are welcome. Meet at Irish Hill Park at the intersection of Cooper & Lexington Rd.

Residents and business associates are encouraged to walk to the meet up site. If you are driving, parking is available at Irish Hill Park. If you have any questions, please email us at info@irishhillneighbors.org.

This event is part of the 1937 Project. What’s that? Look here:  http://www.sbts.edu/current-students/student-life/the-1937-project/

Irish Hill Still Seeing RED This Fall

Weather permitting, this Monday, Apr. 15, Irish Hill Park will be receiving (5) new trees-  (2) Red Oaks, (2) Red Sunset Maples and (1) Commemoration Sugar Maple which will reach 80 ft, 45 ft and 50 ft, respectively, when they reach full maturity. All should be blazing red this fall! Our new tree canopy will not only be beautiful, but will cleanse the air, provide shelter and shade, and reduce the urban heat-island effect.

Many thanks to all involved in this endeavor:

  • Center for Neighborhoods for the hookup
  • Louisville Metro Tree Advisory Commission member & Seneca Gardens Arborist, Michael Hayman for making it happen
  • Brightside for the $1000 grant
  • Green Ridge Farm in E-town for the 3 ½” caliper trees
  • Greenhaven Tree Care for installation
  • Metro Parks for the excavation and advice

Irish Hill has pledged to help care for our new big babies. We plan to get some tree gator bags to keep them watered this summer and will post a watering schedule. If you can be available once a month or so, to help on a watering, it would help so much. Please send your contact info to info@irishhillneighbors.org.
