Community Day Recap
Posted on 21 May 2017
This past Saturday YXU has the privilege or working alongside member from Cultivate CDC in Columbus, Ohio’s Milo-Grogan neighborhood. The team work in the Milo-Grogan green space area, a project spearheaded by Cultivate to bring a community garden and park to the neighborhood. This week’s working session focused on planting herbs in the new herb garden and putting the finishing touching on the fence around the green space.
The green space, located at the corner of Cleveland and Starr Avenue in Columbus, isn’t the only new development going on in Milo-Grogan. Just down the street fitness manufacturer Rogue is building their brand new world headquarters. Together the green space and new Rogue headquarters signal a transformation in the neighborhood, with neighbors coming together to invest in the neighborhood and each other.
YXU’s “Ready to Grow” tee will remain on sale throughout the month of May. Sales from the shirt will go to support Cultivate’s efforts to finish the green space and purchase required materials in the future.
