In 2020, members of the Fannie Lou Hamer Garden partnered with the Bloomfield Park Neighborhood Association on a community process to start to redesign the Fannie Lou Hamer Community Garden.
The garden is a special place, but its infrastructure is failing. Plus, there is an overgrown sliver of City-owned land next to the garden that could be used to create a nice public space.
We got COG Design – a nonprofit landscape design firm – to help us create a new design for the space! This project is currently on hold while we work to overcome a barrier related to the nonprofit owner of the land where the garden sits. See more details (including pretty pictures of the proposed plans!) from this 2020 post on our website.
