Mayor Barrett and All Peoples Church Break Ground on New Sustainable Orchard
July 14th, 2014
Mayor Tom Barrett, Alderwoman Milele Coggs and Pastor Steve Jerbi of All Peoples Church broke ground on a new sustainable orchard. The orchard will occupy a previously vacant City-owned lot between 1st and 2nd Street and Locust Street.
The orchard will be supported by Mayor Barrett’s HOME GR/OWN Initiative and Strong Neighborhoods Plan. The project was created for local residents to understand environmental safety issues, and learn how to become environmentally conscience while becoming more involved in the community.
