Monthly Allerton Blend

Enjoy your morning pick-me-up while getting up-to-speed on all things Allerton! Grab a coffee and join Allerton Director, Derek Peterson, in the Greenhouse Café at 9am on the third Thursday of each month. You will hear about a blend of hot topics on the past, present, and future of the Park while joining Derek in a task related to keeping Allerton beautiful. All sessions will include an opportunity for Q&A, and a service oriented task that will be different every month.

No pre-registration required. You should dress appropriately for the weather, including boots and gloves for most activity. All activities will be weather dependent. The Greenhouse Café will be open – so you can purchase a snack or take something home for lunch! See the Spring and Summer 2019’s lineup of Allerton Blend topics below:
