Greening the Mean Streets of Worcester - part 3


I've been putting off making this post because it makes me too sad, too angry. Two weeks ago, the plantings we put in the sidewalk on our side of June Street got stomped. Just before this happened I was thinking I should take a photo and update you all on how well the plants were doing. Ha!

I know it was not the kids who live right here. It's other kids who come over to this neighborhood and hang around. I also know that the kids and their parents who live here know exactly who did this, but won't tell me, even though they don't like the outside kids hanging around, because they're afraid of retaliation.

There's a youth center and Beaver Brook Park less than 10 minutes away walking distance. Apparently what they have to offer there doesn't compare to the fun that can be had on June Street stomping plants.

Me too. There are more busted up plants this week now that the kids are back to school. (We're a bus stop.)

Thinking about planting something next year that will give everyone a rash!!!
