DSC_0671On Monday, July 14, 2014 Mayor Tom Barrett, Alderwoman Milele Coggs and Pastor Steve Jerbi of All Peoples Church broke ground on a new sustainable orchard. The space for the orchard is currently vacant and the program is supported by Mayor Barrett’s HOME GROWN Initiative and Strong Neighborhoods Plan. The project was created for local residents to understand environmental safety and issues. Residents will learn how to become environmentally conscience and community stakeholders.
