The friendly resident artists greeted us and immediately took us into their "family." Reaching out to the community in so many ways (local art for kids, tools for neighbors to borrow, seeds to use and exchange for urban gardening), they allowed us to get involved by helping plant, weed, and pick up the outside of the building area. They allowed us to put a little of ourselves into the Union and its mission.
Our time was short, but the impact the Union had on us was IMMENSE!!
