And your very flesh shall be a great poem.
– Walt Whitman
You’re invited to gather in celebration of our local biota, yourself included…
WHO: Friends and neighbors associated with the Boulevard and Pulaski neighborhoods.
WHAT: Earth Day celebrations. Gathering at the proposed park’s top tier for a neighborly chat with park info offered by park project organizers. Stroll through land with introductions to flora and fauna led by Matt Elliott and UGA students Lindsey Petersen and Allison Dublinski. Have a seat with poetry and related recitations on lower-tier facilitated by Heidi Lynn Staples.
WHEN: April 22nd, 6-7pm—Earth Day
WHERE: Potential park site, where Boulevard meets Barber
With beauty before me I walk
With beauty behind me I walk
With beauty above me I walk
With beauty above & about me I walk….
HOW: You bring a passage by a published author(s) on a subject relevant to Earth Day. Each person offers some ‘sing’ up for anywhere between 2–5 minutes. BYOR (bring your own refreshments) and BYOB (bring your own blanket). The area is relatively uncultivated, so we will want to take care negotiating the terrain.
Come make a joyful noise at the pocket park for Earth Day! Post-event convenings at Little Kings.
For questions about this event, please contact Dan Lorentz at firstname.lastname@example.org or Heidi Staples at email@example.com.
