Last Sunday, Myrtle Village Green got together and did the the first planting for Spring 2012. Since we can’t get inside the lot yet, we used the fence to plant about 50 containers, made from salvaged plastic bottles, with pansies in them. We talked to neighbors, kids dug in dirt, there was juggling, and at the end, the vacant space in our neighborhood looked a bit brighter. We also got a chance to tell people that the lot would soon be open for an interim project and the long term planning would be open to their participation.
This morning, all the flowers and containers and the MVG banners, which have been up since September 2011, are all gone. A clean sweep. We don’t know who took our flowers and signs and we don’t know what it means. Can you help us figure it out?
