St. Anthony PPS Launch

While past posts have introduced to you our first US-based project, here in Southern California in the Eastern Coachella Valley, we are finally proud to say that the project is launching! After securing a grant from the California Endowment through their Building Healthy Communities Initiative, we are getting the ball rolling. This Sunday at St. Anthony we will be hosting a BBQ in the center of the community to formally launch the project and allow for all residents to have a chance to get involved.

One of the challenges we face in all of our projects is how to have the most amount of participation as possible from community members. For St. Anthony we have passed out flyers throughout the community to residents, talked to members of the existing community groups and posted the flyer at gathering points within the community, specifically at the water tap. Our hope is that we will have participation from at least one member of every trailer on Sunday. Sunday’s event will allow residents to sign-up for the different committees, including the design, maintenance, garden and youth committees. We are extremely excited about this weekend and can’t wait to post pictures next week!
