This year's theme is centered around the best possible Beechwood Avenue for our community. The walk will be interactive and have different stops including pop-up murals, guerilla gardening, and impromptu gathering spaces.  Community participation opportunity:  bring some hardy plants from your garden and be prepared to plant them at designated places along the walk.


Starting at the corner of Beechwood & Mackay, we will walk up Beechwood Avenue as far as Acacia Ave. We will then walk back to St. Charles Church at 135 Barrette Street, where we will complete the afternoon.
