This Saturday, April 18th, is the Brady Heights Neighborhood Association general meeting. As usual, we’ll be meeting at Centenary United Methodist at 631 N. Denver. The meeting begins at 10 am and a sitter will be provided.
This month we will be forgoing regular business in order to welcome two special guests.
Laureen Gilroy, the Recycling Coordinator for the City of Tulsa, will be giving a presentation on the disposal of yard waste and recycling. Our second guest speaker is Captain Karen Tipler of the Tulsa Police Department. Capt. Tipler will be presenting a crime report for our neighborhood as well as responding to questions & concerns from the neighborhood. Both presentations will be incredibly valuable during the coming warmer months and I hope to have a large turnout! Please encourage your neighbors to attend.
After the meeting, at around 11:30, we will be holding the Annual Plant Swap at the Community Garden. Bring your extra plants, seeds and sprouts to exchange with others! Both indoor and outdoor plants of all varieties are welcome. All plants will be free to good homes, and you don’t need to bring a plant in order to participate. We will also be grilling and providing a casual picnic lunch. Although not at all required, please feel free to bring a dish to share.
Here’s hoping for good weather, and I’ll see you all on Saturday!

OETA’s Oklahoma News Report visited Brady Heights yesterday afternoon for a segment on the community garden debate. Tony Newsome, Justin Pickard and Justin’s daughter Ellie joined me in the garden to speak to reporter Cathy Tatom about our garden, and its positive effects on our neighborhood.
Read more about the segment, which aired this afternoon (March 18th) on the Oklahoma News Report Blog. The segment may air again on this weekend’s edition of TulsaTimes.
Thank you, Cathy, for visiting us… and for aerating our soil with your high heels!
Remember that the public hearing and vote on the Community Garden Ordinance has again been postponed. It will now be heard on March 26th. The next Brady Heights Neighborhood meeting will be this Saturday, March 21st at 10am.
Saturday the 31st from 9-12 will be the next community garden work day. Projects for the work day will include removing the old broken fence on the north side of the property and cleaning up any brush along its base. This is in preparation for a new fence that will enclose the garden. We also finally received our first load of mulch from the city. We need to finish removing any sod left so we can spread the mulch. This will let us know how much more we will need to order. I finally got the right contacts at the green waste facility which will make this process so much easier. Thanks and looking forward to seeing everyone on the 31st.
A big thank you to all the TU students who came out to the community garden on the 22nd! Brady Heights really appreciates the work that you guys do to help make our dreams for the garden a reality. Even in the winter, the garden is looking great!
Many new beds were built, bricks moved, and the rest of the sod was dug up to make way for mulch. Having so many extra hands made the work go much more quickly.
Also, thanks to Leah and Justin who provided fantastic quantities of fantastic Joe Momma’s pizza for those who participated in the work day.
