A Ceremony for Let Us Build Cully Park

2 Comments

From the Let Us Build Cully Park website

The Thomas Cully Park project is located in NE Portland’s Cully Neighborhood, a neighborhood characterized by concentrated poverty, racial diversity, as well as by lack of access to nature and other environmental benefits. In response, Verde and partners have organized the Let Us Build Cully Park! coalition, a collaboration of 15 community-based organizations, including the Columbia Slough Watershed Council, the Cully Association of Neighbors, Hacienda CDC, Latino Network, Native American Youth & Family Center, Portland Community Reinvestment Initiatives, and Verde.

A Tribal Blessing Ceremony will be held tomorrow, Saturday November 23, from 11am-1pm at the park site.

Tribal Blessing Ceremony 

Saturday, November 23, 2013, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

11:00 am Welcome
11:20 am Opening Blessing
11:30 am Tea and Seed Scattering Ceremony
12 noon Lunch

If you can attend, please send an RSVP to Cary.Watters@gmail.com.  

The Portland Brownfields Program worked with Let Us Build Cully Park! and community members to examine and approve the environmental conditions at the garden site. The project's web page has a helpful health and safety page that describes how the site evolved into such an asset for the neighborhood and watershed.
