Sustainable Springfield, Inc. will host two presenters on Wednesday, September 21 from 6:30 – 8:00pm at the Carnegie Room North of the Lincoln Library, Seventh and Capitol Streets. The meeting is free and open to the public. The first speaker will be Sue Kemp with Decatur Is Growing Gardens (DIGG). DIGG is a gardening effort to create learning and job training opportunities through growing vegetables and bringing neighborhoods together. Their mission is to enrich and to nourish the Decatur-Macon County community by helping those who are hungry and who want to work to grow their own food — especially those who are socially, developmentally, or economically disadvantaged. The second speaker is Frank Calaway of West Bloomington Revitalization Project. As a revitalization task force, this group is committed to neighborhood revitalization efforts, which will serve as a model of change for other neighborhoods in the Bloomington-Normal area, and to empower our neighbors and fellow community members during this exciting process.
