It’s been a few big weeks for the SNOW Block Alley project. First we had this awesome story in the Idaho Statesman. The week after, the Dirt Diva mentioned us on her weekly radio show on 94.9 the River. Then on Labor Day, as we were driving back from a wedding in Seattle, I got the call from the local NBC station, KTVB, saying that they wanted to do a story on the alley… that evening! My husband put the pedal to the metal and with the help of the neighbors, we got the alley gussied up in time for this great story by reporter Emily Valla. They were so excited about the lights, that they even came back at 10:00 pm to do a live feed.

I couldn’t be more thrilled with all the positive press we’ve been getting. I hope our project inspires many more neighbors, in Boise and beyond, to come together and create their own micro communities.
