Our Happy Block in The Oregonain (Oct 23rd Paper)

View the Article on Our Happy Block in The Oregonian!


Pastor Carl Stenzel and Terah Beth B. Varga stand in the middle of the Calvary Lutheran Church parking lot that will be transformed next year. Over the summer, Varga mobilized residents in a pocket of Southeast Portland's Mt. Scott-Arleta neighborhood and created a plan that won a Portland Development Commission grant.

I, Terah Beth,  just want to add this:
The article focuses mostly on PDC...but  SE Uplift, Depave and Friends of Trees have been AMAZING for our grassroots group...they've made the process so much easier!
I want to give big shout-outs to them!
