I went to Kashi this evening to help out. Smaller crowd, but good conversation with a fellow volunteer while making PBJ sandwiches. We talked about our weekends and the different things we did. He told me about a place close by, Lake Claire Community Land Trust, that had a music festival of sorts.
So after volunteering we checked it out. It's a a neighborhood that has community gardens, farms, a lake, a place to hang out, things for kids to do, and a great view of the city skyline. They also hold events every couple of weeks. It's a really neat spot and definitely a community that is very environmentally friendly! The Land Trust was created entirely by volunteers and they have on going volunteer opportunities. Definitely one I hope to check out soon!
