The neighborhood association held Board elections on Monday, May 12 – thanks to all of you who turned out to participate! The Board roster didn’t change, with all members nominated and approved for another year of service. One exception is the SEUL Liaison position, which is now held by Vicki Wilson! Meet your Board at http://fosterpowell.com.s131094.gridserver.com/?page_id=98.
From Vicki Wilson, the Foster-Powell Community Garden organizer:
“Hi friends and neighbors.
There is a nice garden underneath some weeds at SE 62nd and Powell Blvd. Help us find it this Saturday, May 10th from 10-4. Drop by for a while, you don’t have to stay all day. One person and one hour makes a huge difference. See you there.
Thanks for helping us raise money for the garden in April. We should be busy all summer but the plan is ever-changing. It looks like we will build a few beds, work on our water issue and grow a PUMPKIN PATCH this year. We plan to sell the pumpkins in the Fall for another fundraiser. The Oregonian has been working on a story about the garden for a while, watch for a story about the garden in the next month or so!
Also, if you didn’t have enough reasons to volunteer at the garden already…The lovely sisters at Midpoint Cafe have generously offered to hold a community garden volunteer appreciation event at their restaurant some time this summer!
See you in the garden,
Contact Vicky with any questions!
We need volunteers to help inventory the trees, team leaders to attend trainings, and on-call arborists to “float” around the inventory area. The result of the tree inventory will be a Neighborhood Tree Plan, a document that will identify gaps in the street tree canopy and identify ways to reduce them. You can find additional information at http://fosterpowell.com.s131094.gridserver.com/?page_id=640.
