Paul Durbrow rakes

When the Neighborhood Concerns Committee of SCNA was in the park one dark, cold morning, a gentleman walked up and volunteered to rake leaves – for anyone in the neighborhood who “feels at the mercy of Big Garden Care.”

His name is Paul Durbrow, 50 in July, who lives on 26th Street. Paul taught high school math for 20 years but is currently not working. That means he is home to “hear the gas-powered lawn creatures every day, even in the rain!”

Paul likes to “get out and rake, sweep and dig by hand because it’s good for us, our neighbors, our planet.” He wants to use hand tools as a means to meet his neighbors, help beautify the neighborhood and get some outdoor exercise on top of it.

“I’m willing to meet with folks and see what they want done and how I can help.” Contact Paul at
