Two Colorful Current Projects

As a result of the latest Root for Columbus ACTION Potluck, citizens are coming together, with the help of your Columbus Public Library, to help make Columbus a more vibrant and welcoming place for all. Throughout the summer of 2017, R4C volunteers are inspired by summer beauty:

One group will be adding splashes of color to our construction zone downtown. They are creating mobile spots of beauty that honor the history of our beautiful four corners. Throughout the summer a number of little red wagons, planted with seasonal flowers, will move around the downtown as construction allows. Each wagon will also display the story of the building that it sits in front of. Keep an eye out for these little spots of historical color. Please post here if you have a little red wagon to lend to the cause.

The other group is planning a Summer Garden Tour to take place on July 2. A map will be created with locations for a number of homes whose owners are really putting their all into landscaping and summer gardening. This is your chance to meet neighbors, make new friends and talk with local gardeners. You might even walk away with some great new ideas for your own yard. The tour will be walkable, bike-able and drive-able so as to accommodate everyone with an interest in our local gardens. Please post here if you have a recommendation or two for a beautiful yard.

From all the Root for Columbus volunteers, may your summer be filled with color, local pride and good living.
