2022 Greenspace Report

Under Xochi’s leadership, the Fair Haven Library sanctuary garden project is off to a fantastic start. The project aims to recognize and respect the Indigenous peoples who currently live in or originate from the area. The robust history of the space, the land, and the peoples of the area make this project extremely important. For that reason, the group decided to spend much of this season planning, recruiting volunteers and raising awareness. By the end of the summer, Desiree joined in as a regular volunteer and the group was able to spend one day doing major clean-up of the space. The group plans to continue meeting throughout the year in order to keep planning and building a team interested in working on the space.
