One year ago we hosted our first South End Community Day, a Saturday morning dedicated to landscaping and art projects to spruce up the neighborhood. In partnership with the Charlotte Community ToolBank and the South End Neighborhood Association (SENA), we have planted several new flower beds and spruced up an old dumpster over the last 2 community days and this Saturday we’ll be focusing on a public art project along Camden Rd.
We’ll begin the day at 7:30am (I know that is early on a Saturday for many of you) but we’ll meet at Common Market and provide breakfast and coffee to you for FREE! We’ll share all the work projects, break into teams and head out. We hope to be wrapped up by lunch time and we’ll be providing lunch to everyone from Phat Burrito.
If you’d like to volunteer, please email me, Ted Boyd, at firstname.lastname@example.org. RSVP is not required but appreciated!
Landscape Projects: Planting flowers in a beds along Camden.
Public Art Project: The South End Neighborhood Association partnered with Ciel Gallery and Mosaic Studio on the public art project which will be zip-tie art along the light posts on Camden between S Tryon and Park Ave. Below are a couple examples from other cities. The additional cool factor in this project is that after about 3 months, we’ll remove the zip-ties and a local South End company, Fabrix, will take the zip-ties to recycle and repurpose!
