DenverPost.Com: Lakewood Program Works to Grow Community in Neighborhoods
August 29, 2012, by Emilie Rusch
In a lush, backyard garden in Lakewood, a group of neighbors was talking about how to attract hummingbirds.
Try planting agastache, suggested Tom Slabe, an expert in backyard wildlife habitats. It’s also known as hummingbird mint.
The group was gathered together for a Resilience Circle, part of a new city initiative aimed at encouraging community and sustainability in Lakewood’s many neighborhoods. The small gatherings are intended to bring neighbors together to learn and provide support.
