Space 4 Art has partnered with the Greater Logan Heights BAME CDC and students and teachers from King-Chavez High School to build upon on-going work to develop and revitalize the neighborhood business corridor. Together we are working to transform a neglected, trash-strewn lot on Imperial Avenue from a public eyesore into a vibrant community garden and park in an area that has a tremendous deficit of such spaces. The Gilliam Family Community Garden & Park project will -
- Develop an abandoned plot of land in Logan Heights into a community garden and park with broad local resident and business support.
- Establish a grassroots organizing campaign, based on experience with Logan Heights pilot project, for other communities to replicate in their own campaigns to develop parks and open space.
- Educate and organize community members around green space deficits and the importance of park and open spaces for healthy communities.
