Celebrate the 24th Anniversary of 6/15 Green!

Join us to Celebrate

The 24th Anniversary of the
Birth of 6/15 GREEN Community Garden

24 years ago, the lot at the corner of 15th Street and 6th Avenue was filled with trash and the home to an abandoned construction trailer that was a haven for drug use. In September of 1988, dozens of neighbors, frustrated with the inaction of the local cops, came together to clean up the lot with chainsaws, shovels, a forklift, and ingenuity.

On September 8, please join us to celebrate this event and the spirit of community action that created and sustains 6/15 Green!

When:  6:00 PM Potluck (with food donations from local restaurants)
