Grow in Englewood

Good Morning Grow Greater Englewood members,

As you all are aware many exciting things have been happening across Englewood, in particular many of our member organizations.

As the summer gets underway we want to provide each member group to exchange with each other and provide updates on programming and foster community of sharing in intentional collaboration.

Last month GGE has been busy on three fronts:

  • We had our first Englewood Farming and Gardening tour with students from Depaul University studying education
  • IMAN and GGE's Sonya Harper have been interviewing and touring corner stores, we are seeking other stores that we can engage with to think of strategies improving access and increased consumption of fresh fruits and veggies.
  • GGE Coalition Calendar. Last month we sent out a request for groups to share upcoming events, we are looking for all of our members to share and work together towards a harvest celebration in late September early October. We would want all of our members to help plan a collective event. We have an embedded calendar here that will allow you to insert our event date. Also we ask that you send and flyers, pdf to us as well.
  • Englewood Trail - GGE was recently included on talks to help lead the community framework conversation for the proposed Englewood Line. As many of you hear about the new 606 opening, we want to have our coalition members at the table from the beginning of this restarted planning conversation

Up Next:

  • Developing a workshop about developing a Cooperative
July (Education Committee)
  • Corner-store work -contact Sonya Harper
