This course is open to students at all levels and from all disciplines. Led by Professor Daniel Winterbottom, we will be working with the community of Gretna, La and Jefferson Parish to design and build a “serenity” garden in a public park. The “serenity” garden will be multi functionsal, to create a gateway into the community, provide a setting for a historic building which will function as a vistors center and provide the community with a contemplative place to relax and learn. The reflective of historic and vernacular gardens of the period this garden will also explore issues of sustainability and community expression. Design or construction experience is not required all participants will partake in the design, community and building processes. This will complemented with field trips to natural and cultural places in and around the city of New Orleans.
