Schenk Crafty Fair, Tubachristmas, Edible Landscapes - D15 Update 12/9/19
Eastmorland Cookie Plate Tradition Continues
I was happy to be able to help distribute cookie plates again this year to those who "need a little TLC." Big thanks to Bernie Hanson for organizing and to everyone else who chipped in baking, plating, and delivering. It's such a great tradition to bring a little holiday cheer and to check in on those that could use a visit.
Edible Landscape Proposal and Survey
There is a proposal to plant an edible landscape on city-owned land by Starkweather Drive and Richard Street. The organizers would love your feedback on which plants should be included and what else you want to see on the site. You can read more about the project in last month's Hi, Neighbor! article and you can fill out the survey here.
