Dusting Things Off

It’s been awhile since we’ve been in these parts of the intertubes, but now that we’re here we thought we’d dust things off a bit and roll out what we hope to do this year. Up until this point we have mostly been about neighborhood clean-ups and restoration. While this is necessary, this is not the only thing we want to be known for. Our last few projects have been around the idea of community gardens. This is a new and exciting thing for us to be a part of because it allows the neighborhoods involved to actively pursue a goal and spend time nurturing something, in addition to feeding people in the process.

We have also recently started a relationship with The James Gang, a community building organization that has been in Iowa City for many years. Together we will be able to reach more people and hope to have more creativity with our projects.

Stay tuned. This is going to be a year to remember with {reclaiming roots}!
