Introducing the Summer Series
We are excited to announce the Summer Series, free events held weekly at World Garden Commons in Rabanus Park from 1-4 p.m. on Sundays. The first event in the series will be held July 9.
These welcoming events will build community by emphasizing food and music, art and play, and ecological interests. Non-profit partners will host and curate the activities.
The Summer Series helps us to achieve our goal of working with partnering organizations who will invite their members and neighbors of World Garden Commons to explore, promote, gather, and create in and around the basin. As people interact with the natural landscape, we hope they will begin to understand their cultural dependency on natural ecology. As a result, we welcome diverse partners who can use the commons to promote and extend their own missions.
In addition to working with partnering organization, the Summer Series offers activities for the neighboring residents of the commons. These residents already walk along its paths, admire its restored prairie and water features, and enjoy the Listening Garden and Welcome Garden. The Summer Series creates one more opportunity for these neighbors to explore World Garden Commons and to feel a connection to the landscape around them. For this reason, the diverse populations around the commons are encouraged to use the space for cultural demonstration and promotion.
We hope our partners have a positive experience with the site and interact with new audiences. We hope our World Garden Common neighbors and the general public will gather here to ignite ideas and form new partnerships. The commons is a place to be entertained, but it’s also a place where we can begin to imagine possibilities, possibilities that will improve our city and neighborhoods.
