Sustainability Oak Park
Help move us to toward the long-term well being of ourselves, our neighbors, villages, and planet.
“Try it, you’ll like it! “ Develop strategies to increase the use of TimeBanking: It’s time for us to use the many wonderful assets of all residents, increasing sharing of unmet needs and unused resources. A time bank can help us do that.
A time bank is a tool that matches individuals who have something to share (which is everyone) with individuals and organizations that have needs.
Join us to explore the assets and needs in OPRF that can be matched through TimeBanking and encourage residents to try it.
Meet new people, learn about creative ideas & projects and contribute your suggestions.

Why sculpt the trees?
Trees may be dying in Chicago at a quickening pace due to stress from changes in climate. Warmer temperatures, new insects, invasive species, and volatile weather are pervasive. These problems compound the difficulties trees already face in the harsh urban landscape!
This Chicago Tonight segment gives a good description of the Chicago Park District /Chicago Sculpture International (CSI) Tree Project.
CSI is celebrating its Tenth Anniversary this year at Art Expo and Elks Memorial on October 25th!
