Working with staff from the city’s creek stewardship, we have managed to get a landscaper at the property adjacent to where the Poppy Creek Green Space bulletin board is, to stop spraying. This came after a bunch of flowers we had planted at our fall gathering were poisoned and destroyed. New ones are now coming up, and a promise not to spray again was made.
We are building bridges across cultural, generational and economic divides within our own neighborhood focusing on:
|community service||ecological action|
|creative arts||skill building|
Our projects foster a sense of connection with the land and ecosystems where we live. We are also reducing our fossil fuel dependence (no cars needed for anything we do!), and building a vibrant, sustainable community. While we are based in the Junior College neighborhood of Santa Rosa, California, we are creating a replicable model for neighborhoods everywhere.
