Fruity Nutty Neighborhood

I'm excited to announce that Walker's Point is one of six Milwaukee neighborhoods chosen to host a fruit and nut orchard!

Check out the link here to the 3.5 minute video put together by CORE/El Centro and Bucketworks, showcasing our neighborhood participants and the impact these edible plants would have on our community.

This video was a lot of fun to put together; though it was challenging at times to find green space to plant a tree or two, I was so happy with the overwhelming support I received from those who I met during the process.  Even if they didn't have the time/space to host their own tree, all the neighbors were supportive of the initiative.  We will be holding our first 'group meeting' in early April to finalize the tree selection and planting details.

Check out the Victory Garden Initiative website to see more about the other neighborhoods that were chosen, and watch other group's video applications.
