Art for the New Start Community Garden Fence

New Project in 2021 - Art for the New Start Community Garden Fence

Funding for this project is proved by the Port of Seattle's South King County Fund for Environmental Grants (SKCF.)

The goal of this project is to make the community garden an inviting, interesting community space by providing art that will be displayed on the garden fence. We will encourage the local schools and community to participate in this project that connects art with nature and gardening. This garden provides for food security in a community that has many apartment buildings. The project will engage participants that reflect the diverse culture diversity of the area.

This project demonstrates through the artwork that the community garden is a welcoming place for all ethnic groups, by providing art that represents all cultures of the surrounding area. This project demonstrates a commitment to environmental and social justice initiatives by incorporating inclusive and culturally sensitive activities and engagement.
