June is always a busy time for Isles, and we're especially excited to share some celebrations and milestones with you this year. Here's a snapshot:
First, we just completed our first-ever ambitious weeklong virtual Forum from June 7-12. We had more than 1,000 registrations for 18 sessions held over six days, where we explored community development and environmental challenges and solutions. Missed it or want to watch again? Read below to see how to watch the recordings from these popular and informative sessions.
This Saturday is Juneteenth, a day celebrating the emancipation of those who had been enslaved in the United States. Isles recognizes Juneteenth as a holiday for reflection and service and will be participating in the city-wide event at Mill Hill Park.
Next Tuesday, June 22nd, is the Isles Youth Institute Commencement Ceremony. This celebration of youth achievement will be in a hybrid format this year - we're holding the event with a limited in-person audience at the Social Profit Center at Mill One and livestreaming it on our website.
Last, but certainly not least, Isles' Summer Garden Social is Friday, June 25th! The Garden Social, held outdoors at Isles' demonstration and production garden at Tucker Street, is a celebration of sustainable communities. We invite gardeners to bring a dish to share with using their own local produce.
Read below for more information on all of these events - we'd love to see you there!
