Welcome to the Community of Linwood
Linwood Community Garden: Opening for planting!!!
If you have not yet been assigned a plot, email The Garden to grab part of the remaining space available. First come first served. Once it is gone, you will have to wait for next year to join in the fun when we hope to grow our group.
Squealing Through Linwood
Every year for the last several, over 20,000 runners actually run the full marathon coming through Linwood at the back end of their race. We are proud to support them, and you have probably been mildly inconvenienced by the closure of Eastern Ave., scratching your head at why folks would do that (run 26.2 miles) to themselves, and maybe gotten caught up in the spirit of the moment (SQUEALING!).
This year we are making an even stronger commitment to supporting the Flying Pig by having two official "squealing stations" and organizing a clean up of the area for the weekend before. We would love to see you on Sat. April 27 at 9:00 a.m. to help clean up under the overpass from Columbia Parkway at the far eastern end of Eastern Ave. Then, on Sunday May 5th join us to make noise and welcome those runners.
What's in it for us? The Flying Pig Marathon is a huge supporter of neighborhoods and activism in Cincinnati. They have something called the PIGGEST Raffle - that allows you to purchase a flying pig - watch it fly from the drop point on Sat. May 4th - and see if you win one of several prizes including a 2013 Toyota Prius for a two year lease. All you have to do is donate to the Flying Pig Piggest Raffle ($5 per chance) and...anything you donate will get returned to Linwood in the form of a charitable contribution.
Linwood Community Garden: opening this spring!!!
Before the community garden is ready for spring planting, we need to have one more work session...I mean, garden party...in order to turn over some of the organic matter we have sitting on top of the soil and then top off the beds with more soil. We also need to drive in some rebar to reinforce the bed walls. Greg Stefani has offered to haul dirt from Hafner for us, and right now, the best date in the near future looks like March 30 around 10:00am. We need at least 5-10 volunteers to help, but really the more the merrier. I know that is the day before Easter and lots of folks will have travel plans and egg hunts in the way, but if you are willing to help out, please let me know. If we don't get a big enough response we will reschedule for a different day, but we want to get this done as soon as possible so we can start planting!
Also, if you have any of the following at home, please bring them on the 30th:
We already have over half of the plot space currently available rented out for this year! If you want to have a plot, please get your registration materials to me as soon as possible to ensure you get a space. If we have a lot of interest, we have room to expand, but I don't know what the timeline for that expansion would be so best to get your registration in now. If you need a registration packet or have any questions, email The Garden for sign-up information. To write the council by snail mail, our mailing address for the Linwood Community Council is - PO Box 9374, Cincinnati, OH 45209
Officer Brown will be acting as the new Neighborhood Liaison for Linwood along with Madisonville.
