New Projects Starting up Soon!
We have several exciting new projects in the pipeline and teams are forming now. Please email Project Development coordinator Sarah Mehaffey ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) if you are interested in working on any of the following opportunities - we'll be scheduling informational meetings for each of these projects. Please list the project name in the subject line of the email.
Team Forming: Eco City Farms Signage & Self-Guided Farm Tour Design
AfH-DC is partnering with Eco City Farms (http://www.ecoffshoots.org/) to design signage for a self-guided tour of the farm and systems used at their Edmonston, MD location. The project is ready to get underway immediately, and we anticipate meeting once a week until August or September. We are seeking to form a team of at least 5-7 people, and will be scheduling an organizational meeting for anyone interested to learn more.
Team Forming: Mt. Pleasant Park Conceptual Design
AfH-DC is exploring the potential for partnering with several local non-profits to convert an under-utilized strip of land into a neighborhood park. We are interested in helping the groups develop a conceptual plan for the parcel, that they could use to approach the various city jurisdictions for support and approvals. Ultimately we could end up guiding a neighborhood visioning process as well as final design of the park. At this point, until the groups are able to determine feasibility and identify funding resources, we are seeking to form a team of 3-5 people to help develop and produce the conceptual plan. Please email if you are interested in attending an informational meeting
Feasibility Team Forming: UnBlocked Project
AfH-DC is continuing our collaboration with FabLab DC, this time in their own backyard. They have approached us with an interest to re-vitalize the block that contains their workshop, but the actual method is not yet defined. It could be streetscaping, facade beautification/renovation, or any other sort of smaller or larger urban intervention. At this point we would like to form a small "feasibility team" of 2-3 people able to network further with FabLab's organization, learn more about their neighborhood and block, and basically brainstorm possible re-vitalization projects.
