The DC Box Collective, Wangari Gardens and Tumbleweed Tiny Houses, bring you ‘Repurposing Space’, a showcase of three ways local organizations are working to reuse vacant or underutilized land in the District. The event will take place Sunday, April 15th, Noon-5pm @ Wangari Gardens. The gardens are located west of the Washington Hospital Center/Children’s Medical Center, bordered by Irving St. NW, Kenyon St. NW, and Park Pl. NW [map]. A minimum $5 contribution. All proceeds to benefit the sponsoring organizations.
Wangari Gardens is a newly planned community garden space, orchard, rain garden, and community grounds located on 2.7 acres. The DC Box Collective is working on adapting used shipping containers to fit the needs of under-resourced District neighborhoods. Tumbleweed Tiny Houses have been one of the earliest promoters of tiny home living, and have inspired plans for a DC tiny house alley community launching this summer. On site will be a model of the Tumbleweed Fencl, a 130 square foot tiny home on wheels perfectly suited for infilling urban backyard or alley spaces. Visitors are encouraged to come learn firsthand about all three exciting initiatives.
