Sun and Fun in Buchanan Mall

June 9th, 2017

6.9.17-Buchanan-Mall_IMG_0510What better way to be outside on a beautiful sunny day, than to give back to the community by spiffing up Buchanan Mall. Citizen Film, the Village Project and most of the CommunityGrows staff rolled up their sleeves to plant and mulch this wonderful space, making it even more inviting. 6.9.17-Buchanan-Mall_IMG_0487This five block area has been undergoing a transformation thanks to Citizen Films and many community partners. Today’s event got kids to put their hands in the dirt and do a lot of weeding and cleaning up of the site. 6.9.17-Buchanan-Mall_IMG_04336.9.17-Buchanan-Mall_IMG_0431They really got into having the responsibility of working with shovels, pitchforks and trowels, all under adult supervision.6.9.17-Buchanan-Mall_IMG_0526The space was truly transformed when the work was done. Thank you everyone for making the neighborhood more beautiful!
