Do you see the street intersection paintings around town, benches made of earth, or food forests? This event will explore such sights in South Portland and discuss how communities design and install the projects through the City Repair Project. This is a great event if you want to do such a project in your community!
At our start location we'll observe a cob bench, move to a intersection repair painting at SE 19th and Clinton, go into a community led garden a block away, and end at the City Repair office at 1421 SE Division Street.
City Repair facilitates artistic and ecologically-oriented placemaking through projects that honor the interconnection of human communities and the natural world. The many projects of City Repair have been accomplished by a mostly volunteer staff and thousands of volunteer citizen activists. We provide support, resources, and opportunities to help diverse communities reclaim the culture, power, and joy that we all deserve.
This event is a part of Steptember organized by Oregon Walks.
