Where Planting Beauty is a Social Justice Event

Saturday, May 1, 8 am to 2 pm Beautify Turley and Area

---Transforming and planting at the Welcome to Turley sign, 56th and N. Peoria. This is one of the main entries into our part of the area as you cross into the unincorporated section, and immediately confront abandoned houses and eyesores; the Welcome sign will be a seed of hope and beauty right away.

---Picking Up Trash dumped in our area; there is more than we can ever get to but we will make a stab at some of the worst of it. Bags, gloves, water provided.

---Planting more outdoor classrooms at Cherokee School, 6001 N. Peoria.

---Plant and Seed and Tool Exchange at A Third Place Center, 6514 N. Peoria Ave.

---Giveaway Day at the Center

---Free Lunch for Helpers at the Center

---Live Country Band Johnny and The Oklahomans during lunch at the Center.

If we get enough helpers, Working on the new beds at Horace Greeley school, 63rd and N. Cincinnatti. Working on the intersection at 66th and N. Lewis, the community garden at 60th and N. Johnstown.

Hope you can help us spread the word, and find helpers for our project this Saturday; in part it is completing the rain-dampened projects from two Saturdays ago at Cherokee School, plus planting projects for which we received a Keep Oklahoma Beautiful grant.

Come by and see what's happening on North Peoria. And while here see the city block of abandoned houses we are raising funds for to transform into The Welcome Kitchen Garden Park Project at 60th and N. Johnstown.

We are a third of the way in raising funds needed; help us now; all we need are 100 more people to give an average of $100 (give more if you can, give less if you need to; all is dearly welcomed) indicate if you would like a particular name on the donor sign in honor or memory of someone.) Read all about it and donate online at and share with others; this is a grassroots intiative carried out entirely by all volunteer community group. We are hoping if people can't give $100 they may know ten people who could give $10.

Thanks for all you do, feel free to pass this on.
