BIG things with Beautify VaHi! ~ a list of projects

Hi Neighbors!
You might be thinking you haven’t heard much from Beautify VaHi in a while… BUT that’s because we’ve been planning MEGA for this year! We are taking last year’s momentum with the Perk’s Plus card, Winter Planting and VaHi Stocking Stuffer Market and were quadrulping it! We are so excited to announce a calendar full of neighborhood events and beautification efforts. 

A List of projects Beautify VaHi is working on:

  • First, we want to brag on the daffodils we planted by the median sign back in December. They JUST popped up, and somehow it feel like instant gratification. So beautiful.
  • Our Co-Founder, Katie Voelpel, is working with the Civic Association toward a Place-making grant from the City of Atlanta to spice up the Va-Hi median with tables and chairs under the existing trees. Application is due March 29th.
  • Spring Planting Day is April 13th at 10am. We will be meeting at Art Bath Soul for an afternoon of beautification and maintenance in the main VaHi intersection. Join us! To make a donation of money or supplies, please contact katie@beautifyvahi.com.
  • We are scouting a farmer’s market for our VaHi neighborhood residents, hopefully to open this Spring down by Atkin’s Park!
  • Looking forward to a pressure washing of the business corridors this month!
  • New Easter Wine Walk & Dine event is happening in the main intersection the Saturday before Easter (April 20th). Bring your friends for an afternoon of wristband-access to exclusive discounts, a VaHi commemorative wine glass, with wine and appetizers from local restaurants. Only $25, Sign up now on Event Brite!
  • Keep an eye out for a Beautify VaHi Quarterly Newsletter mid-April. Email katie@beautifyvahi.com to join the list! We will be using this platform to update residents and visitors on news and events of each upcoming quarter. You won’t want to miss this! For other updates follow our Facebook @BeautifyVaHi
  • A Mother’s Day Sidewalk SALE-bration is also happening. Similar to the Stocking-Stuffer Market we will be hosting independent artists & owners on the sidewalk of the main intersection. Bring your mom/graduate out to this free event on May 12.
  • A VaHi Restaurant Week in June? We really hope so! Ask your local restaurant if they are participating.
  • The 2nd Generation Perks Plus card is also in the works, set to launch this Summer/Fall.
  • Beautify VaHi is also working with Art Bath Soul to create a co-op/community workspace in the back Enrichment Lounge area. For activities like, book clubs, bead-bracelet making, office hours, small workshops, and more. Contact Ben or Kayla at Art Bath Soul For a free booking/tour during business hours.

And that’s about it…for now!
We are so excited, and hope that you will join us for all the fun.
