‘Harvest’ blight from the abandoned lots to...
Hi Gavin. The Smart Mules rocked the house on that one. :D Anyone want to start a matching fund for the next one? People seem to get excited about competitions. :)
Does anyone know who the grant recipient was, or which of these ideas won. I've done a quick google, but can't seem to turn up any info. I was just curious.
Yes, yes and yes. Any and all of the above ideas... I'm game. When/how shall we get together and get started?
Check out the Secret Sculpture Garden on Forrest Ave. It's an abandoned lot purchased from the land bank and turned into a children's art garden: www.ssgmemphis.com
I'd imagine Thomasin would be very supportive of anyone who wanted to create another children's garden space. I'd love to see something like this downtown or on Vance Ave.
I don't see any reason why different gardens couldn't each have their own theme. I think this would be a great idea for one of them.
What about a childrens garden designed in a collaboration with a group of kids, artists, lanscape architects, and members of the neighborhood?! It could feature recycled materials, native plants, scuplture, slides, and heirloom edibles. I am totally game if anyone is interested.
Hey everybody! It's November 1st (time flies), and the period for sharing ideas and demonstrating support has now closed. Thank you for sharing your idea with the community.
The National Garden Association will announce the grant recipient at Memfix: Cleveland Street, a community event on Saturday, November 10th. Come out to Crosstown for a day of civic minded fun, and learn how you can support the winning project.
