"Unity Park" - an experiment in urban permaculture

Ms. Laura Gardea has received a grant from the Winston-Salem Arts Council to bring beauty to urban areas and asked the Institute if we could help with an urban permaculture "food forest" concept.

The Institute was granted access to a vacant lot on the South side of Winston-Salem. We have begun planning for a project to create a sustainable urban food forest for the Washington Park - Historic District - neighborhood. We envision an outdoor perennial garden/park space suitable for public lectures, small performances, teaching and relaxation. The project will include support from area universities, faith groups, neighborhood businesses and interested individuals.

Would you like to volunteer to help work on this project or sponsor it with additional donations?
