The Biggs Hillside Garden is a project of ReClaim Northside, transforming a vacant lot into a tranquil garden space. Neighbors can stop and sit in the garden or pass by going up and down the Biggs Stairs.
Our City Steps mural sits at an important intersection for several North Side communities plus North Hills commuters. We hope to improve the appearance of our neighborhood, and instill pride in our residents.
We are programming and open sourcing the community garden building in a wasted lot of a high demand area threatened by developers for youth to learn sustainable skills for a replicable and robust garden based curriculum.
For this project, senior citizens will teach children how to establish a garden. It will involve the churches, schools, and community organizations. The outcome will be knowledge about nutrition and exercise.
