The results of Sunday’s land art event on Water Street

There’s still work to be done, but the other day’s land art event on Water Street went really well, and I think the dozen or so of us who showed up were able to accomplish our goal – making the barren, rubble-filled lot at the heart of the property a little more interesting.


Many thanks to the young idealists of the Ypsi Free School for making it all happen.

One last thing… Those of you who would like to contribute toward the further revitalization of this area are encouraged to join us on the Water Street Commons this Saturday afternoon at 2:00, when we’ll be meeting with shovels and wheelbarrows to spread wood chips and create trails through our burgeoning native plant prairie.
