David Turicek of Boy Scout Troop 21 and ReciproCITY, a local arts-based urban redevelopment collective, are performing an Eagle Project at Peace Park & Garden, a site located on the corner of 5th Street and West Locust Street in Milwaukee. The project is scheduled to be performed at the site on August 25th and 26th in hopes to not only refurbish the garden, but also to contribute to the restoration of the city of Milwaukee itself.
After about 4 years since its last refurbishment, Peace Park & Garden will once again be renovated.
Fidel Verdin and Dr. Mike Carriere of ReciproCITY, along with a plethora of volunteers, are working with Turicek to make this project possible.
The project will feature the addition of newly-built raised garden beds; construction of a complex compost bin structure, a unique pyramid-shaped garden bed, and wooden-pallet benches; as well as the installation of a thematic stone peace sign into the ground.
A special thanks to The Home Depot, Inc. of Wauwatosa, Superior Equipment & Supply of Milwaukee, as well as Frame & Axle Service of Brookfield for their generous support to the project.
Troop 21 is a Boy Scout Troop stationed in Brookfield, Wisconsin. The troop meets at Trinity United Church of Christ and is home to over 30 scouts between the ages of 12 and 17 who hope to join the 88 Eagle Scouts that the troop has already produced.
If weather becomes an issue, the project will take place on September 1st and 2nd. If you would like more information about volunteering for this project, please call David Turicek at 262-391-2729, or email email@example.com. To learn more about ReciproCITY, visit www.reciprocitymke.com.
