GreenThumb Events & Workshops
Participatory Design in Community Gardens
Wednesday, May 5, 2021
12:00 p.m.–1:30 p.m.
Community gardens are shared urban spaces that respond to their community’s preferences and needs. The participatory design process allows gardeners to express their ideas and cultural context, helping to sustain their garden space over time. This session will discuss how to approach participatory design in your community garden by looking at examples of community garden design elements and sharing tools for participatory design.
Please RSVP to receive the link to join the webinar.
