The Hamline Midway Environmental Group is reconvening in 2015 with fresh energy and lots of exciting ideas to further sustainability efforts in the neighborhood. The group aims to create and nurture a healthy and sustainable environment in the Hamline Midway community through projects, public awareness and education, community member involvement, and collaboration with partner groups and organizations.
Past projects have included rain barrel workshops, a holiday light recycling program, community gardening, community tree distribution, transportation improvements, waste reduction, movie nights, rain gardens, and coordination and upkeep of the plantings along Snelling Avenue.
At the groups first meeting in 2015 a plethora of exciting ideas for new work and initiatives were discussed including a discounted tree sale, a mushroom and urban foraging class, workshops on tree care, pollinator workshops and much more.
