Native Garden

Along with our group of dedicated partners and neighborhood residents, TTF worked to transform a vacant lot at the corner of Clearview Street and Washington Lane into a stormwater management demonstration site, community meeting space, and outdoor classroom.

TTF kicked off our vacant lot project with an Art Garden Party hosted by students in BuildaBridge’s Artology summer program. The project showcased the artwork of local students and created a vision for what the lot transformation would eventually look like. Following the kickoff event and a series of community meetings, TTF community residents planted a variety of native flowers, shrubs and trees and hosted a ribbon-cutting event in September 2011.
