2017 was filled with lots of fun activities. Our partners at Oregon Walks were in charge of the event planning and coordination for the Lents Founders’ Fair. Our events included cotton candy, cultural food, a mural, and homemade root beer floats. We were also able to attend Lents Green Ring focus group by PSU Professor Amy Lubitow. ROSE had a Pickles game BBQ in which we offered fun activities for kids. We were also able to help at the Kelly Elementary native garden and attend the Oregon Just Transition Alliance summit.
This year we also partnered with The Intertwine Alliance and their Daycation project. This allowed us to create a special partnership with Momentum Alliance, Urban Nature Partners PDX, Blueprint Foundation, Boys and Girls Club of Portland and OPAL’s Youth Environmental Justice Alliance (YEJA).
