Community Day for Poetry (July)

Our volunteer crew and many new faces came together on July 22nd for a soothing Community Day at Overton. We tended to the garden and sipped fresh herbal tea before featured guest Justus Cornelius Pugh walked us through a poetry workshop, all while Sean Black played guitar gently in the background. Attendees journaled, shared their writing, and gathered in a circle to improvise words and song together.

This event centered around healing, wellbeing and care—some of the themes we’re exploring through our Community Days this summer. On August 19th we’ll be back at Overton for another refreshing evening. We hope to see you there!

Saturday, August 19th, 5:30-8:30p

Overton Elementary, 4927 S Indiana Avenue @ Overton
