Trash Talk

September 16, 2012

My community is currently involved with an orchestrated effort to improve the neighborhood. The promise of potential grant funding isn’t the only carrot either. Judging by the discussions at our community meetings, this has been attempted before, and there are folks who are skeptical about it. However, many of us are still new here and we still have the energy to try. Yesterday, I did everything from tear out grass growing curb side, and slash through underbrush in order to break up a drug den, to scrub away disturbing gang graffiti, and create our own educational version of it. The photos above highlight a program run by Blue Water Baltimore that helps draw attention to the connection between our storm drains and the health of the Chesapeake Bay. By 3 o’clock I had found 13 cents, collected three free bicycles, connected with my neighbors in really powerful ways, and loved every minute of it! With the new LEED certified school now under construction, a new brewery/tasting room opening soon, and the power of the people who live around me, I think we are gonna put this place on the map in a truly positive way. Watch out for Waverly!
