A recent TERRA.fluxus project helped out Sunset High School through a landscape service project. I was asked by Sunset Presbyterian Church to give them some assistance in developing a planting plan for a courtyard space that was underutilized by students and staff. After visiting the space and developing a planting plan – the church was off and running getting materials and setting up the plans.
On May 7th, the group leveraged hundreds of volunteers for a day of planting. Photos of the day are found below.
One aspect of the project designed by a church member (who is also an architect), were custom screens installed to reduce some of the fishbowl effect of adjacent windows. The screens are made from wood reclaimed from the schools visitor bleachers, which were removed as part of the work day.
The final planting after looks great. Cleaned up, with new plants, screens, and a new life!
