New Playground in Edgewood!

Thanks to Inspired Teaching School, Kaboom and AmeriCorps a new playground is coming to Edgewood next to the Shaed school building.  On September 11, 2014 the National Day of Service hundreds of volunteers will come together and complete a playground, garden and mural to make a new play area for the charter schools and the neighborhood.  After school hours and the weekends the space will be open for the neighborhood to enjoy.  

There will be three prep days as well prior to the build day.  Volunteers are requested so if you can please come out!  All volunteers must be 16 or older and more information will be coming on times for each day.  They need about 20 volunteers for the prep days and 75 volunteers for the build day.  Let me know if you can volunteer and I will keep you in the loop.  


  1. Count me in as a volunteer. I'm also a photographer so I'll definitely take before , during and after pictures.
