GCP joins the NWI Urban League's Federation Of Block Clubs as the Program Coordinator. As a volunteer member of this team we are excited to work with the FOBC to CHAMPION community engagement! We are focusing our commitment to help block clubs achieve neighborhood success by connecting people with the right resources. We are also working to better engage city workers with the FOBC including our committeemen, committeewoman, and department leaders. The FOBC is intended to be the pulse of the community and we want to ensure every neighborhood has access to information and resources to help reduce or eliminate blighted conditions.
Community Garden Kickoff! We are grateful for the support of Methodist North who has partnered with us to bring fresh vegetables to our communities! We are working with Green Urbanism to help us prepare for our 2020 farmers market. All produce will be sold locally to residents and to local grocers, and all proceed will be reinvested back into the program. We welcome all who have a desire to share their gardening skills and passion! Contact us for more information
Come join us as we prepare for Phase II of our flower garden creation! We will outline the pattern and begin the process to create a large flowerbed in the park! Our goal is to have flowers that bloom all year round. We are looking for people who have knowledge in horticulture that can help us identify which flowers will bloom at what time and a general knowledge of flower placement.
