The 7th Avenue Merchants Association needs your help to make a community garden possible in the Melrose District. Please read on and vote now so we can garner the grant that will make this happen.

The Seventh Avenue Merchants Association has applied for a $250,000 grant from Pepsi Refresh. The grant money, with additional help from Clear Channel Communications will create a community garden on what is described as a weed infested lot at the corner of 7th Ave. and Montecito. The design for the garden has already been achieved by combining community input and student talent from the ASU School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture; A fine collaboration of local talent and minds.

The key to success lies with you and others who can vote on the Pepsi grant website. If we get enough votes, we win and so do our community.
