Last Minute Workday, 9am, Sunday

Please come out and help re-plant the stolen knockout roses tomorrow morning at 9am.

Mike Motta found 5 inexpensive rose plants that we will plant. Along with the plants, curb edging will also be installed. Any and all help is appreciated!



Plant Theft at N Polk St Beautification Project

Last night, after the remainder of our mulch had just been put into place, a plant theif stole 3 brand new Knock Out roses out of the ground. These were newly planted two weeks ago by neighbors and friends of the project.

We knew we were taking a risk putting landscaping in, however with this project being so visible along a major street we figured people would have to be pretty desperate to do something as steel from the community.

Our hope is that they are recovered or a donor is willing to help us replace the $75 we’ve lost. Any information one may have please email jrbraddick@gmail.com


Need Newspaper, Help; Saturday, 9 am

We need newspaper to lay down under our weed blocker to help stop the grass from growing. Come out to help at 9 am to 620 Turner Ave to drop off and stay to help us finish the project!
