Sweet Water Foundation is excited to welcome participants at its flagship site, The Commons, for a two-hour tour and hands-on experience on Wednesday, October 23. During the workshop, participants will be challenged to explore their relationship with the world around them, integrate Sweet Water Foundation’s practice of Regenerative Neighborhood Development in their lives, and consider the relationship between places where one lives, where things grow, and where things are built or torn down. Participants will engage in hands-on activities such as farming/gardening techniques, carpentry, and printmaking.
Sweet Water Foundation practices regenerative neighborhood development, a creative social justice method, that creates safe and inspiring spaces by establishing healthy, intergenerational communities that transform the ecology of once-“blighted” neighborhoods. The Foundation utilizes a blend of urban agriculture, art, and education to transform vacant spaces and abandoned buildings into economically and ecologically productive and sustainable community assets that produce engaged youth, skilled workers, art, locally-grown food, and affordable housing. These principles are realized in the flagship Foundation project, the Perry Avenue Commons, encompassing approximately three acres on the South Side of Chicago.
