A Proposal by Englewood Community Dev. Corp
WHAT IS THE MISSION OF YOUR CAUSE:
Create an Outdoor Classroom/Playspace for all neighborhood residents to learn, engage, grow and play
HOW WOULD YOU USE THE $25,000 TO ADDRESS AN UNMET NEED IN YOU COMMUNITY?
The Englewood Outdoor Playspace will allow children and youth the opportunity to learn, experiment and grow in a natural environment not typically found in a low-income urban setting. This natural playspace is designed with areas for growing vegetables, water play, outdoor musical instruments, building with rocks and logs, an art space for creating and getting really messy, a sand pit and a climbing tree. The Englewood Outdoor Garden will serve as a catalytic garden space for neighborhood residents of all ages to learn how to grow their own healthy food. This space allows for neighbors who have gardening knowledge and skill to mentor those neighbors who do not yet have that skill. In partnership with ECDC, neighborhood residents will be able to utilize the health-department approved kitchen to learn how to cook and prepare vegetables they have raised, as well as learn how to can and preserve. It is our hope that these learned skills will lead to a healthier diet and quality of life.
