Refugee & School Gardens

Each year Design Resource takes on a community project and offers design and project planning services at NO CHARGE for organizations who seek to create change in their communities. Volunteers who step up and give their time, resources and passion deserve the support and assistance of the rest of us.

The 2010-2011 recipient of services is the Refugee and School Garden Project located in Holladay, Utah. Community leaders from Holladay City, Salt Lake County and nonprofit organizations are teaming up turn a presently unused patch of land into a place to cultivate skills, friendships and food.

Design Resource provided the Conceptual Site Plan as well as recommendations for navigating the political and economic hurtles necessary to make the project a reality. Our extensive experience with volunteer recruitment and management is often more helpful on community projects than our design work!
