how we, as a neighborhood, can draw out a permanent sense of place and enhance it with things that really work for individuals -- like edible landscaping and home retrofits, but also communal centers for exchanging information/food/celebration/games, etc. She will also talk about resources and also how individuals can build resilient, sustainable homes that contribute to that neighborhood health we all want when we are invested in a place.
We will have the opportunity to brainstorm our own ideas for enhancing our community. Some neighbors have discussed the possibility of a community garden (we are McDoel Gardens, after all), and one of our next guest speakers will be from the Green Acres Neighborhood Garden.
Bring your ideas, along with your friends & neighbors to the meeting. We want to hear what you want to learn about in the upcoming workshops. From your input we will schedule the next speakers.
