Volunteers clean up site around Solon barns

Volunteers clean up site around Solon barns

The Solon Township Site Plan Committee and volunteers worked again last weekend on the cleanup of the smaller barns on the township property at 15185 Algoma Avenue.

Siera Hull, Charlie Whitten, and his brother David shoveled horse manure out of the old stalls last weekend at the Solon barns cleanup.
The site around the old red barn and the old tin barn are starting to look pretty good.

According to volunteer Len Allington, volunteers have been working to clean up around the barns with mowers, weedwackers, and lots of labor. Vicky Babcock brought a tractor to till an area that was almost impossible to walk over because of deep furrows. She also used the tractor and loader to fill an old well pump site.

Siera Hull, Charlie Whitten, and his brother David shoveled horse manure out of the old stalls onto a trailer and cut burdocks and other large plants around the buildings, while Shelly Aardema and Melanie Whitten hauled the brush off to the trailer. James Dean and Allington ran the weedwackers and chainsaw and helped haul debris.

This is the fourth volunteer clean-up this summer and the place is starting to shape up. If you want to volunteer to help please send an email to len@laphoto.com or show up at the next committee meeting at the Solon Township Hall on Monday, August 20 at 7:00 p.m.

The township bought the property in 2009 in a tax foreclosure sale, and will be breaking ground there this week on a new township hall. A farmer and flea market is also held there each Saturday, beginning at 9 a.m.
