NOMAD Gardens

NOMADgardens, is a mission to find an empty lot in a developing neighborhood, fill it with portable plots of dirt and then invite the community in to build their gardens. More than just a garden, it is designed to be a hub for the community. Home to movie screenings, art shows, workshops and picnics or barbecues, NOMAD will roam seamlessly from vacant lot to vacant lot.
