Greenway volunteers came out on a Saturday morning in June to learn how to prune, weed, and water the vegetation at Meeting Place at Tradition Cornerstone with the guidance of local organic gardening expert Charlie Headington. A rotating group of volunteers have committed to helping maintain the edible orchard every two weeks through the fall. Interested in helping? Contact Laura Lorenz at firstname.lastname@example.org or 336.387.8355.

Over 50 people attended the ‘roof raising’ of the Meeting Place structure onto the Tradition Cornerstone site located at the corner of Smith and Prescott Streets in December. Lajos Heder, one of the artists from Harries + Heder Collaborative was on site to supervise the placing of the roof onto the structure.
A Big Belly solar-powered trash receptacle and drinking fountain have since been installed at the site. Work continues on the site and depending on the weather, plans are to have the site completed by the end of March 2014-just in time for Spring!
This will be a great site for picnics, family gatherings, birthday parties, and a place to have lunch during your workday. Look for an upcoming announcement for the ribbon cutting. We hope to see you there!
The Tradition Cornerstone is now under construction! Developed by artists Mags Harries & Lajos Heder, the second of four cornerstones along the Downtown Greenway is located at the intersection of Smith & Spring Streets in the northwest corner of the 4-mile loop. Work has begun and will continue through March 2014. Click here for photos and more information about the design and fabrication process.
