Community Design-Build Workshops
Sidewalk Roots works with residents of neighborhoods to create planters for their outdoor public spaces, using materials from their local businesses, and plants native to our city. Workshops can take place in gardens, schools, or businesses.
By engaging community groups, these events can offer education around local plantlife, waste streams, upcycled materials, and community engagement -- but also act as a platform to crowdsource ideas and design strategies for relevant, impactful urban renewal.
