Does your neighborhood have a treasured tree? A park or playground that makes you proud? Let’s celebrate it through poetry and art! In this collaborative project, a writer, an artist, and an educational specialist will join your community to craft a professionally designed book commemorating your celebrated green space, with submissions open to neighbors of all ages. Our team will even lead a student workshop to help young residents create their best work. When we’re finished, we’ll celebrate together with a community kick-off…starring your neighborhood’s performers and artists! You’ll walk away with print and digital copies for easy sharing.
