I got this press release from the Old Town Commercial Association. 

 

­­­­­­­­­­­ old town is going green!

Old Town gets ready for Spring!


OLD TOWN,Lansing, MI. –

As the days get warmer we are excited to announce three ways we’re reaching out to the Greater Lansing Area and becoming more eco-friendly.

The Old Town Commercial Association will host its annual Neighborhood Spring Meet n’ Greet. Residents of Old Town are encouraged to come join us at Grand Café Sir Pizza on April 15th 6-8 p.m. This informal neighborhood gathering provides a chance to meet other Old Town residents and business owners. There will be information on how to become an Old Town member and ways to get involved in the community! Also, it’s a chance to talk about what residents would like to change or see happen in the neighborhood.

Old Town will also break ground soon on its first Community Garden. Located on Cedar Street between Maple & Ash Streets (and across from Su Casa and Friedland Industries), the community garden will serve to offer local residents access to traditional produce and nutritionally rich food, as well as beauty to the community. Soil testing is currently being done for the lot, and initial planting is scheduled for late April/early May. Anyone interested in helping the community garden thrive can contact the OTCA office.

And the Old Town Farmer’s Market is thrilled to announce that it will begin accepting both Project Fresh coupons as well as the Michigan EBT Bridge Card when it opens on June 7th. Running from June to October, 10am – 3pm, the Old Town Farmer’s Market will be home to over 10 local farmers, monthly music concerts, as well as unique demonstrations such as patio planting techniques and rose maintenance, all free to the public. Come down to Old Town for the First Sunday Gallery Walk, and leave with locally grown, fresh produce!
