Gore Street… Prepare to be Flower Bombed!

Flower Bombing Gore Street

Taking Back Downtown is at it again.

Last year we flowerbombed Jamestown with amazing success and this year community members from the Gore Street area have come forward to ask for your help in beautifying Gore Street this summer. As a result you will help to clean up the neighbourhood, increase livability and safety, create some visual appeal, support local businesses, foster neighbourhood pride and positive vibes in the area.

WHAT: Flower Bombing is a guerrilla community initiative that in this case, explores the karma and power of beautifying a less utilized public space. Flower bombing is practiced in Cities across the world and is a form tactical urbanism. http://www.treehugger.com/urban-design/tactical-urbanism-action-guerrilla-intervention-brings-change.html

WHEN: On Saturday July 12th, Taking Back Downtown in collaboration with members of the neighbourhood will set up Flowerbomb headquarters from 1pm to 5pm outside of the Neighbourhood Resource Centre and work together to transform the space.

WE NEED YOUR HELP! Do you have a green thumb? Are you interested in helping to beautify Gore Street? Do you have access to gardening tools and/or gardening supplies? Paint brushes and paint? Would you like to provide us with some musical inspiration? Then stop on by and lend a hand!
