We are excited to be in our second year as place makers with City Repair and as a community, we are reaping the rewards of being a community that is blooming! Over the last few years our community has transitioned from a place of fear and disconnectedness, to knowing each other and expressing ourselves as a community through long term and multi-site projects. This year we are repainting our two intersections, installing a free little library, building a greenhouse, adding raised beds and kiosk to the garden site. The intersections are a place to tell our story and the community garden continues to unite us both physically and metaphorically as we lay roots to reap a harvest of food and relationships in the years to come.
