…to name a few.
UUP worked on a new Children’s Imaginarium (playground) that was co-created by COTS and UUP for the Mary Isaak Center. We raised about $190 towards this effort, and took a trip to Urban Ore in Berkeley to get some inspiration. Our first step was to meet with Carrie from COTS at the Mary Isaak Center and look at the space there.
UUP was a core part of the 350 Gardens (in one day) event on May 15th, 2010. We helped to organize this massive endeavor for sites in Petaluma and we also worked together in community in the yards of our own members. See the 350 Gardens page on our site for more info on how it went, including a slideshow!
A group of us helped out the the Petaluma City Hall Lawn Transformation that will result in an annual savings of 3.5 million gallons of water and $25,000 in avoided water bill costs. We also helped to fight climate change, as pumping water is one the state’s largest energy consuming activities. Furthermore, we installed community gardens and edible landscaping that means more local production of food.
