Blake Street Community Art Project
We are in the process of installing a new kiosk, bench, trees, and artwork on the green space located at 188-198 Blake Street. We will invite members of the public to help paint in late September or early October. More details to come.
Heart & Soil Vegetable Garden
This garden was created through an extensive collaboration with our Healthy Neighborhoods Partners. It began with Raise-Op purchasing a vacant lot and surveying over 70 residents on what we should do with the space. A majority of residents wanted to see a garden! Residents, volunteers, and and local youth worked together to construct the garden. The mural was designed by local youth and created by a member of Raise-Op.
