Friends of the Flamingosaurus

The Friends of the Flamingosaurus seeks to unite the community of Hampden and its visitors in the spirit of fun, quirkiness and reinvention through the creation and maintenance of a public art sculpture, the Flamingosaurus, in Roosevelt Park.

The Friends of the Flamingosaurus will facilitate the creation of a new, improved, 3-D, illuminated, 42′ tall version of Baltimore’s iconic Flamingosaurus. Whereas the original adorned the facade of the Cafe Hon at the corner of West 36th Street and Roland Avenue for two decades, the new “phoenix” Flamingosaurus will rise above the trees a mere two blocks away in Roosevelt Park, on the corner of West 36th Street and Falls Road. After installation of the new sculpture, the continued mission of the Friends of the Flamingosaurus will be to maintain the piece by keeping it illuminated at night, making sure it is clean and free of graffiti, seeing to regular upkeep and repair, and performing the administrative tasks necessary to ensure a healthy lifespan for the sculpture.

The Flowering Tree Center

The purpose of The Flowering Tree Center Fund is to work to fulfill Black Elk’s vision to mend the Cangleska Wakan, the Sacred Hoop. The Cangleska Wakan, Sacred Hoop, is based on the Native American Lakota Sioux concept of Mitakuye Oyasin, which means that everything in the universe is related. Mitakuye Oyasin is a connection to all organic life forms (plants, animals, insects) as well as inorganic (rocks, mountains, rivers and oceans). The elders in our spiritual community are prepared to teach all that we have been given in a spirit of humility. We embrace and celebrate all races, religions, cultures and who you love. We intend to work collaboratively with other spiritual groups and/or non-profits who share a common vision. Humanities survival depends on our willingness to work together for the benefit of All My Relations. In this spirit, our community will offer online and in-person educational opportunities in the form of classes and workshops to the public. Members of our community have 30+ years training and experience in their respective disciplines. Teachings will be related to responsible stewardship toward the natural environment, and spiritual teachings related to both Native American healing traditions and Eastern yogic traditions for holistic health and wellness. -organic gardening, beekeeping, medicinal plants, Yoga and meditation, acupuncture and Native American healing practices and traditions.
