Wangari Gardens is a hub for community life and a green oasis. We, as gardeners and neighbors, have the rare and beautiful opportunity to design and manage this space for ourselves. Wangari Gardens is cared for entirely by residents - you have probably noticed the hand painted signs, DIY fence and furniture. Especially in this moment during a pandemic, spaces like Wangari Gardens have proved more life-sustaining than ever.  Help us develop a vision for the future of this green space.

This past Spring we hosted a design workshop and online survey, with the support of landscape architecture students from UMD. We received a dozen beautiful visualizations of those ideas and have selected four designs to serve as examples to present to all of the gardeners, our neighbors, and the wider community for their input.

We need you to make sure whatever happens next for Wangari Gardens and the surrounding park best serves our community. In this survey, we will ask you about your reactions to four student designs. Based on your responses, we will prepare a formal open space plan for the park with funding from a Pepco Sustainable Communities grant and the help of a local professional. This is far from the last opportunity to give input, and we hope to hear from you many more times as we go!
