Some of our projects have evolved from paper into construction this summer at BTD. We've been dreaming up how the spaces will work all winter and now they are becoming real places. It’s exciting to see these projects come together.
Among the BTD projects are under construction this summer, one of the highlights has been two projects at schools in San Francisco. These projects will bring green spaces into the playgrounds that were formerly dominated by asphalt. Upon completion both projects will be open to the public as part of the planned expansion of the San Francisco Shared Schoolyard Project. School community volunteers and Friends of the Urban Forest will be adding planting to these spaces this fall. By next spring these playgrounds will be transformed into rich, textured spaces with more opportunities for play and ecological education.
