On Saturday and Sunday, June 4 & 5, the hottest days of the year so far, volunteers gathered to make Buckman more beautiful, more fun and to build community spirit.
The Fruit, Flower and Pollinator theme at SE 16th and Ash was renewed on Saturday lead by Jim Forristal after a one-year hiatus.
A newly-enhanced graphic at SE 15th and Alder, designed by Rebecca Jolli, depicting a vine coming out of the compost bin going around the traffic circle with colorful dots, leaves, lady bugs and butterflies, was painted on Sunday. Both painting parties were followed by a Dinner Potluck.
These projects were supported by a SPACE Grant from the East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District, the BCA, City Repair, Southeast Uplift and enthusiastic neighbors.
Thanks to Matthew Simonet for all the great pictures!
