Help save the Carrboro Greenspace

If you are interested in the Carrboro Greenspace initiative (this land is a treasure that we simply cannot afford to lose!) there are two upcoming events you are encouraged to attend.

The first is an organizational meeting on July 30th at 6:30 p.m., at 116 Old Pittsboro St. in Carrboro (within walking distance from downtown and the Open Eye Cafe). The property is one of the only green spaces left in downtown Carrboro. In addition to its ecological diversity and geographic importance to the region (research shows green spaces are absolutely crucial to breathable, livable cities), the land houses important community projects (including the ReCYCLEry, the WITT, and others) that are vital to ensuring a sustainable and livable future in Carrboro and beyond.

Then, on August 4th at 5:30 p.m., the space will host a local-food potluck, performances, music, exhibits and an original fashion show (skirts and shirts), as well as tours of the site, and much more!

After a year of hosting community projects and events including Usufruct!, a summer film series in Carrboro's old community pool (Sparrow's Pool), and many others, the Carrboro Greenspace Collective is holding what could be their final event. All community members who support community, sustainability, and the possibility for publicly accessible spaces are encouraged to help in the fight to ensure the Carrboro Greenspace survives so that all will be able to enjoy it!
