Join us at UMUGANDA this Saturday 6/25 (10-2pm) at Keach Park!

Updated: Jul 16

Greetings neighbors,

The Concord Greenspace Coalition will be participating in Umuganda this Saturday 6/25 from 10-2pm at Keach Park - please join us!! Here are the details:


Overcomers Refugee Services presents New Hampshire’s first Umuganda!

A key part of Overcomers’ mission is to create a “coming together” of New Americans and the receiving community, foster a culture of mutual respect and understanding, and build a stronger community for all. Since many of the New Americans in the Concord community are from Rwanda, Overcomers would like to invite the whole community to join us in this Umuganda event.


This participatory, free, community event will be open to the public and will feature:

  • Painting a Community Mural: The mural will serve as a beautifying gift to the Concord community, as well as a representation of the many new cultures who have made Concord their home. MURAL ARTIST: Jozimar Matimano

  • Planting a Pollinator Garden: The pollinator garden will be a healthy contribution to our environment, and the youth from Project S.T.O.R.Y. will learn a lot as they maintain the garden once it’s planted. Sponsored by Van Berkum Nursery.

  • Park Cleanup + Beautification

  • Gathering for lunch + music

  • We will begin all the activities at 9am until about 12:30pm, and then gather to enjoy lunch and music together.
