Thanks to all of our Alberta Arts neighbors who shared their ideas for the Build Your Block Challenge. Now comes the really fun part—deciding which community project we’ll support with up to $10,000. A team from Umpqua and the community has narrowed it down to three projects, now it’s up to you:
1. Back to the Roots Community Garden
Umpqua will work with a neighborhood collaboration to return an unused vacant lot into fertile land which will be used to teach life skills to local youth. The produce will be shared with the community as a part of a strategy to promote wellness and healthy eating among the community of inner North/Northeast Portland.
2. Youth-Driven Community Art Project
Umpqua will partner with area schools to increase the visibility of children as citizens and contributors to the Alberta Arts district. Youth will produce a community art piece focused on a theme. The art piece will honor Alberta Art’s culture and heritage through the eyes of local youth.
3. Vertical Garden
Umpqua will work with local partners to identify a publicly accessible space for a Vertical Garden which will beautify the community and demonstrate a commitment to sustainability. Vertical Gardens are an artistic way to bring the beauty and benefits of “green” to the community.
To cast your vote, stop by our Alberta Arts store from August 30th through September 10th. We’ll announce the winner on September 15th.
