Dandelion Initiative


The Dandelion Initiative helps consolidate efforts to tend to Genesee Hill’s beautiful grounds with native plantings. We want to thank those of you who have been weeding recently – families, students, neighbors, and even Seattle Public Schools! We hope to have weeding events in the 2023/2024 school year, but we will need assistance planning them.

Dandelion reps: Christy Kinskey, Meredith Deviny,  and Erin Munavu (2nd grade teacher)

Join us on Saturday, Oct. 7,  9-11 am
Help take care of our school by joining our first Dandelion event of the year!  We will work on getting the school grounds cleaned up for Fall. Bring your gloves and preferred weeding tools. Doughnuts provided to assist getting any helpers out of the house!

How you can help:

  • Volunteer for a leadership role with the initiative to plan weeding events.
  • Weed when you have time, and bring a friend!
  • Volunteer to be a cohort representative for any grade. 
  • Join a coordinated weeding event.
  • Tell us some other way you want to help!

First priority areas: 

We will continue our efforts in the beds along Dakota Street near the front entrance of the school, up to the corner of 51st, and down to the Kindergarten entrance.

Initiative goals:

  • Care for our school grounds
  • Foster community
  • Provide instant gratification opportunities for frazzled families
