Caring In Public: Revealing Community Gardens as Social Infrastructure

In 2022, NeighborSpace, in partnership with the Central Park Conservancy’s Partnership Lab, supported with design by borderless studios, and guidance by experts in the stewardship field, produced a visual framework for community gardens and the multiple efforts occuring in these spaces.

This framework’s intent: to reveal the important social infrastructure at work in community gardens often overlooked.
