Day four: Survey analysis and drawing response

On the fourth day of class we were visited by Jamie Zaplatosch who is the education and outreach manager at Openlands, Jamie has provided us with the oppourtunity to address one of the lots in this neighborhood by working on the design for a park/community garden for the space. Jamie addressed the survey process in which the Neighborhood Youth Garden Corps conducted a week prior to the begining of the Kidstart program, the surveys address questions pertaining to the neighborhood's issues of concern, needs, wants, activities that residents engage in and objects and element that can facilitate the activities that they would like to do. After we reviewed the surveys in groups we responded with drawing addressing the needs and wants of the community and issues that we have talked about in our research such as ecological stewardship.
