City Repair Presents City Riparian

The City Repair Project hosts its third annual City Riparian: The Village Planting Convergence event this October 10-12. Join us for three days of service projects, workshops, and social activities centered around Urban Permaculture.

Projects are founded on developing strong local relationships, social capital and equity, placemaking and ecological design, and supporting our local economy. By engaging neighbors in a collective process to design and build functional landscapes in the commons, we will incubate both social and natural capital, furthering the connections between people and their place.
