This week marks 5 years since around 30 supporters from The Alley walked from Avis and #Elsmere to Lawndale and #Vernor to cast their community vote to support the project. This was the beginning of our transition from The Alley, started in 2004, to The Alley Project!!
Things are coming together at the corner of Avis and Elsmere. We were able to embrace some of the “issues” on the lot by researching, labeling, and highlighting naturally growing plants on site. Lots of work to do still. There’s people on site now if you want to check in or help. Today we’re having a mini-celebration to invite people in to check out what’s been going on. Pumpkins, pumpkin painting, snacks, and more… bring the kids.
