Thinking Spring

Posted by ppna on January 15, 2009

Hello Everyone,

This past week I attended a meeting with Amanda from Growing Hope and perhaps 25 other citizens interested in Urban Farming and community gardening. The turnout was amazing since the meeting was 7am on a 10 degree morning.

Another thing to think about is the 2nd Capture the Trash event. Last year’s event was a huge success. Most of the trash was removed from Riverside Park and Frog Island and even the East Depot Town Parking lot. The event is run by a the GREEN group at EMU so most of the participants were students. I think there were only about 6 people from the community represented. Hopefully for 2009 we will get a lot more support from the Ypsi community.

Here are a few things that will help with the effort:
1– we need more places to clean up, ideas are welcom
2– we need teams from all areas. Neighborhood teams, Business worker teams,
3– I think financial sponsors, award sponsors, and food sponsors would also be nice.

If you have any ideas let me know and I’ll pass them along. I believe the date for Capture the Trash 2009 is April 18th.
