This project transformed an empty lot adjacent to the school into a gorgeous central gathering place that celebrates historic elements and the diverse beauty of this small town. Using ideas generated by Milton-Freewater residents, a grassy knoll beside an artfully adorned stage now proudly mark the heart of this community. Over 260 enthusiastic volunteers took part in art-making (mosaics, banners, and concrete staining), building (gabion walls and columns, outdoor lighting, and shade canvas panels), gardening (leveling and spreading soil, laying sod and planting), and general merry-making.
This project was completed under the Pomegranate Center while Convene Principal Eric Higbee was its Design and Executive Directors.
