Placemaking & Public Gardens
We continue to draw interest in the community for placemaking at the Co-op with a public garden space.
The most recent planning session took place on November 6. Entitled "Let's Get Started!", everyone who attended was encouraged to create on 3x5 index cards their vision of the process of creating the garden. Many ideas were sketched and talked about. There was also a presentation by designer David Wolf about using the vacant alleyways and byways in Old Pasadena for pedestrian paths and 'incubator' stalls for small business. The evening was charged with energy and enthusiasm.
Thanks to everyone who continues to inject their creative and visionary gifts into the planning of the public garden, and in particular to Sylvia Holmes for taking the lead on organizing these events.
