The final touches have been put on the Cully Community Garden design process. After some great press on the project, the students worked on summarizing three design concepts into one final design, and solicited feedback from community members from Let Us Build Cully Park, as to final elements and configurations. The final collage that the students presented is photographed here:
And the adapted version based on these concepts, maintaining the vision of the students and refining the project somewhat to look at constructability, pathway layout and access, and grading on the slope. The 20×20 plots allow for a range of uses, such as for one family, two couples (10×20′ plots), or four individuals (10×10′ plots). There are also raised beds in the accessible area, a large group plot for community farming, and terraces along the slope. Other features include a micro-orchard for fruit trees, along with a community gathering/picnic zone, in addition to seating, sheds, and other community garden amenities.
The final product will be the blueprint as we move forward to finalizing budget, permitting, and constructing the garden.
