RuralEdge to Celebrate NeighborWorks Partnership with #NWweek 2022!
As we enter the post-Pandemic period, RuralEdge employees, residents, and community members will gather to improve community spaces, empowering communities for success! Below is the list of our planned activities:
June 6th, 12pm-2pm
Shattuck Hill Mobile Home Park, Newport
Residents of Shattuck Hill Mobile Home Park will gather with staff for a BBQ and conversation on ways they seek to strengthen their community in the coming year. This event is not open to the public.
Outdoor Community Clean-Up
June 7th, 12pm-3:30pm
Derby Line Gardens, Derby Line
RuralEdge staff, residents, and community volunteers are welcome to bring lawn tools, shovels, and power tools to trim trees, build garden boxes, and prepare all gardens for the growing season!
Deck Expansion Project
June 8th & 9th, 12pm-4:00pm
RuralEdge staff, residents, and community members are welcome to bring power tools and their energy as we build a 150 square foot addition to the ground-level deck at Glover Housing, making the community gardens accessible to wheelchair-bound residents and expanding an outdoor gathering area for all residents to gather during warmer months. This is a large project and many hands will make light work!

Community members are welcome to bring their lawn tools and join in the fun, and the lunch!
