An invitation from Theresa to join Meredith Park Orchard work bee on Tuesday evening:
Location: Meredith Park
When: Tuesday, August 27, 5 PM onwards
Please bring a garden fork, spade, buckets, a wheel barrel, family members and or neighbours. There will be tools available for sharing.
We will do some minor weeding and application of 4” of wood chips out to the NEW growth drip line of trees.
This is a critical step in maintaining the health of our orchard. Otherwise low fruiting branches might and have been removed. As well tree trunks can and have been damaged by enthusiastic Parks’ staff using whipper snippers in their efforts to keep our park neat and tidy.
Who benefits from neighbourhood renewal? When capital investment and community improvement plans are directed at low-income neighbourhoods, who wins and who loses?
At this event, we ask: how can neighbourhood regeneration be undertaken inclusively? How have other neighbourhoods in the country organized themselves to assure that municipalities and developers respond to the unique needs of their respective communities?
Speakers will share their experiences, perspectives, and stories of neighbourhoods who have organized and fought to assure that development serves everyone.
