RAIN GARDEN / YOUTH STEWARDSHIP ON THE NORTHERN STRAND COMMUNITY TRAIL
2019
Everett, MA
Lead Designer, in collaboration with the City of Everett and 8th graders at the Madeline English School.

Through research, observation on the trail, meeting people who are stewards along the trail, and looking at maps, I worked with students to detect patterns and read the landscape, learn about plant communities and the movement of water. With this foundation, we designed a new rain garden  at the entrance/exit to the Northern Strand Community trail at the end of Wyllis Ave, on the Malden/Everett line. We plan to build it this summer!
