Plant salvage At North Link's Brooklyn and Roosevelt Station Sites

Tomorrow from 10-noon, Sound Transit is hosting a plant and landscaping materials salvage event in advance of building demolition at the sites of the future Brooklyn and Roosevelt North Link light rail stations, as part of their commitment to sustainability.

Plants, including small shrubs, and landscaping materials will be available for free on a first-come, first-served basis and Sound Transit requests no early birds.

Participants must bring their own tools such as shovels, pots and gloves, for removing and taking away the items they choose.

At the Brooklyn Station site meet in the parking lot of the Chase Bank building (4300 Brooklyn Avenue NE). Plants available include Barberry, Nandina and Boxwood.

At the Roosevelt Station site meet at 1033A NE 66th Street, across from the QFC parking lot. Plants and landscaping materials available include Yew, Bamboo, Juniper, pavers, retaining wall systems and decorative concrete edging.

Sound Transit staff will be on hand.  For questions contact Kristin Hoffman at (206) 903-7401 or
