Promoting Sustainability through the ARTS!
Thanks to all who came out and helped with the Kid's Art Crawl in downtown Meridian. It was a huge success! Kids made planters out of recycled drink bottles and learned creative ways to cut back on our waste.
Newest Garden: Greater Allen Chapel AME Church Community Garden!
Go Green, Meridian broke ground June 20th on our latest community garden--The Greater Allen Chapel AME Community Garden! The Greater Allen Chapel AME Church is a 100 year old church located in Ward 2 of Meridian. Algix (www.algix.com), a local company, was the corporate sponsor for this community garden! Daryl Johnson is the man with the vision for Greater Allen Chapel AME Community Garden and he hopes to put unity back into this section of our community with our newest community garden! Go Green, Meridian's goal is to place a community garden in each of the 5 Wards of Meridian. We have three wards remaining! If you are ready to be the vision of our next community garden, please contact us. Your Ward/community could be next!
