The dynamic project involved design input from the community, after which other people and I recruited hundreds of volunteers (especially high-schoolers) to build the Gilliam Family Community Space and Garden on Imperial Avenue. The 5,000 square foot space includes an amphitheater, maze, huge treehouse, picnic benches, and a teaching garden, among other unique features.

The space tentatively opens in January 2016. The part at the end of the video about the fence coming down was a mistake by the reporter. Enjoy the holidays!
