COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND DESIGN
Cecilia Palmer, together with Orto Semirurali Garten – a Bozener intercultural community garden -, will run a two-day workshop open to 16 participants in order to envision new forms of community development and interaction related to the activities of the garden.
How can design help to foster the relations of the groups and individuals already taking part in the garden activities? How can design help this community affect a broader urban community?
