Attention Shingle Creek residents! You can help our urban canopy!

Are you considering removing a tree or planting a tree due to the Emerald Ash Borer? The Shingle Creek neighborhood has allocated a limited amount of $50 matching funds reimbursed to provide resident/property owners for various technical services, tree removal with replacement.

This summer SCNA will also provide vouchers of $50 matching funds reimbursed for community gardeners to provide habitat for pollinators. Be watching for more details on upcoming workshops and information in the Shingle Creek newsletter and website soon. Contact us today if you’re interested in learning more.

Shingle Creek Common Ground and Olson Middle School seeks gardeners!

Applications are now being taken for gardeners interested in gardening at the Shingle Creek Common Ground Garden at 52nd and Newton Aves. N., and the Olson Atrium Garden! The Common Ground Garden is a demonstration raingarden and natural wooded garden with 12 raised bed garden plots for flowers or vegetables!
