Although it's already July, a belated thanks to all those who participated in the Garden Tool Swap in May. Hopefully you've been able to put all those collected tools and supplies to good use this summer! 

Around 350 people visited the seven garden tool swaps this year. More than 2,200 items were dropped off, and by the end of the morning, at least 1,465 items had found new homes. Flower planters and pots, tomato cages, trellises, and fencing were among the most popular items across all seven locations. Many leftover items were taken by volunteers, nearby master gardeners, and others to be offered up on local BuyNothing and NextDoor groups, at farmer’s markets, and during other upcoming neighborhood events.

Tomorrow! Join the community for an evening of film, reflection, and togetherness.

A Community Remembrance of Justice begins at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church to view two of Cy Dodson's short films (LOST AND FOUND & SAY HIS NAME) that centered around the Longfellow community following the murder of George Floyd.

Holy Trinity Lutheran Church will open their doors starting at 6 p.m. for the film screenings, and we will continue the gathering next door at the once-standing Gandhi Mahal restaurant site, where Ruhel Islam will be providing his Indian cuisine, that was a staple of the neighborhood.

This is a free event, but we are kindly asking for donations towards the rebuilding of Gandhi Mahal and the planned communal gathering center. Please RSVP your ticket so we have a head count for food and seating:
