Hill Farm Elementary invites community to help with ‘Flash Trail’

By Jamie Miller

Bryant will host its first-ever “Flash Trail” at Hill Farm Elementary School on Saturday,[more] May 4, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Hill Farm recently received a grant that allows a trail to be built for school and city use. The grant is also for an outdoor classroom, walkway to the classroom and a pond on the school grounds.

What is a “Flash Trail”? It is kind of like a Flash Mob where people who want to improve on the trails in Bryant all show up at one location to work on the project.

Mary Armstrong, a Math Facilitator at Hill Farm Elementary, was the catalyst that began this initiative and teachers, students, city employees and volunteers are all gearing up to cultivate the raw land around the school on Saturday.

According to the cityofbryant.com website, the city will be providing a wood chipper to "recycle the ‘Flash’ debris and is inviting residents of Bryant to help by bringing any leftover storm debris or spring clippings to a designated area at the school to be chopped for trail mulch. Do not bring debris on any other day other than Saturday, May 4."

Hill Farm Elementary is also asking that all volunteers bring their own ‘Flash’ing Tools to work.
