To the sounds of DJ Josh’s sweet grooves, the King Neighborhood came out in force for the second phase of depaving at King School. Following up on the 2013 parking lot rain garden, we ripped it up in record time to give the school entrances a green facelift, with native garden beds that will greet visitors and provide students a place to get into the dirt. These improvements (and more to come) are brought to you by the Green King Program, lead by Diego Gioseffi.
