The Unforseen Benefits of Placemaking: A Village Pollinator Night

Thursday, March 26th at 6:30pm is City Repair’s monthly Village Pollinators Night at Green Dragon Bistro and Pub, 928 SE 9th Ave -  an event that honors communities for transforming urban space into a common gathering place ultimately creating a healthy, safer and happier neighborhoods. This month, Jeri Bee, will talk about her first time coordinating her neighborhood to paint the Elliot Intersection Repair on Rodney and Tillamook.

The Green Dragon has kindly offered to host us in their Grow Hut and will be donating a portion of food and drink sales to City Repair.

The event will feature a short presentation from Jeri Bee. She will be presenting about the history of her neighborhood, how the neighborhood “repaired” the intersection and the tremendous affect it has had on all of the surrounding neighbors.

After the presentation, audience members interested in hosting a community placemaking project will be invited to ask Jeri any questions they may have. Marc Tobin, the Executive Director of City Repair, will be on hand to play acoustic guitar for us after the presentation.

Community placemaking project applications will be on hand for folks who are interested in becoming a Village Pollinators themselves!

City Repair has been building stronger communities through grassroots led public art and natural building for over 15 years from the Sunnyside Sunflower to the Syracuse intersection in St. John’s.
