Community News - Edible Streetscape Coming To East Side
This summer, East Seventh Street will be a showcase for local food “to honor and share the diverse healthy food traditions that we have on the East Side,” said Tracy Sides, executive director of Urban Oasis.
On May 26, Urban Oasis, along with Urban Roots and the Dayton’s Bluff Community Council, will start a project called “Edible Streetscape.”
The project has three goals: To help create a healthier and more walkable environment along East Seventh Street and on the East Side in general, to honor and share the nutritious and diverse food traditions of the East Side, and to illuminate local food connections.
The project has been in the works for a few months now as Urban Oasis took in community input on which plants to grow in 10 planters along East Seventh Street.
