On April 22nd, Earth Day, Francesco and I attended the City of Raleigh Environmental Awards ceremony at the Natural Science Museum. These awards honor individuals and organizations who have accomplished outstanding work in environmental stewardship.
We met lots of wonderful community members like Arthur & Anya Gordon of Irregardless Cafe, Donna-maria Harris and Paula Stroub from the Office of Sustainability, Catie McEntee from the NCSU SOUL Garden, Paul from Liberty Community Garden and Donna Harris from the Alexander Family YMCA. We even have a photo with Mayor Nancy McFarlane.
To our surprise, the Wedge Garden received the M/I Homes Urban Agriculture Award that encourages the development of urban agriculture within Raleigh!
Thank you Environmental Awards Jury for your recognition and support.
