WHAT: Better Block hosts civic leaders, activists and city staff from several cities as part of the Reimagining the Civic Commons network’s Learning Journey series. The group is doing a deep dive into Oak Cliff and parks around downtown Dallas and learning its history. The best way to experience a city is not by vehicle, but by walking, scooting, biking and using the streetcar. 

To that end, this morning includes a “how to ride a scooter” session followed by a history tour of “Capturing Lee Harvey Oswald.”


Meet at Oddfellows

11 a.m.-11:30 a.m.  Lime scooter demonstration

11:30 a.m.-12 noon Capturing Lee Harvey Oswald

Ending at Mercado369, 369 W. Jefferson Blvd., Dallas, TX 75208


According to Krista Nightengale, Better Block managing director, “We want to show people Dallas in transportation other than the vehicle because so much of the work that we do and what this group does is bringing people together in public spaces.”

Keep Grapevine Beautiful: Organic Gardening - Grapevine

Feb 27 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
The REC of Grapevine
1175 Municipal Way
Grapevine , TX

Come learn how to garden without synthetic fertilizers and harmful pesticides. Organic gardening is fundamentally different from traditional methods. Organics nurture the soil and help it absorb and retain moisture longer which reduces the need for water and fertilization. Joyce Connelley, of Marshall Grain, will also instruct participants how to prevent weeds without using toxic chemicals.

Free. RSVP on website link below.
