Alley Garden Awards
July 14th – July 21st
Deter crime by gardening. Planting a few perennials here and potting some plants there can make a huge difference in improving the aesthetics and safety of your home.
In 1992, the Macalester-Groveland Community Council agreed that community beautification deters crime. In response, we started the Alley Garden Awards. Prepare your alleyside property in time for the Alley Garden Awards and help prevent garage burglaries and other crimes facilitated by unkempt property.
