Join us for a tour of the North Shoal Creek Community Garden, where we’ll explain how our neighborhood took a design thinking approach to creating a space for our community.
Using design thinking, our neighborhood identified a community need and came together to create a space to foster the neighborhood’s identity, encourage neighbors to gather socially, engage with the land through gardening, and provide educational opportunities to the students at Pillow Elementary.
At this event, we will share a brief history and background of the neighborhood’s community garden, highlighting how we solicited community input, how design was involved, and how we worked with the city on this project. We’ll walk through the garden itself and leave you with some lessons that we learned, ways we are giving back with this project, and ideas on where and how you can start designing for your own community.
