PROJECT DESCRIPTION

We are excited for our third year as place makers with City Repair and as a community, we are reaping the rewards of being a community that is blooming! Over the last few years our community has transitioned from a place of fear and disconnectedness, to knowing each other and expressing ourselves as a community through long term and multi-site projects. This year we are repainting our two intersections, working with local nurseries to install a pollinator strip, and collaborating with a permaculture program to develop a long-term design to the community garden site. The intersections and community garden continue to unite us physically and metaphorically as we lay roots to reap a harvest of food and relationships in the years to come.
