Last week, the Archeworks team along with Christina Bronsing from ENLACE began planning on possibilities in upcoming public cultural events in the neighborhood. Events mentioned, in chronological proximity, were the Little Village Arts Fest ’09, a Pocket Parks Workday, Halloween Celebrations, and Dia De Los Santos & Day of the Dead Observations. A possibility in an Archework’s more involved role in afterschool education programs will also be explored.

Team is currently working on display for an Arts Fest exhibit.

News about ENLACE’s recent acquiring of a US Forest Service Monarch Butterfly grant of $6,000 have sparked ideas on introduction of a Monarch attracting Milkweed planting into the program of the Pocket Parks.

In other Pocket Parks process news, the Trumbull & 26th site application to Neighborspace has been approved.

Workday ideas include winterizing the existing gardens, planting bulbs, message board installations and maintenance, seed give-aways, and possible arts/craft activities.
