These will make some good "before" shots for discussion
What type of nature do you think we can add to improve the health and wellbeing of our neighbors?
Maybe fruit trees to encourage early pollination and reduce pollution from cars
How does biodiversity and environmental justice in neighborhood planning benefit urban residents. I hypothesize that replacing community trauma, even small changes, will have a positive effect on the residents’ health and wellbeing.
I will use my smartphone to take pictures of the neighborhood while recording my walk with a GPS. The GPS will send the information to "Relive" to create a video of the route with the pictures inserted geographically.
This is great. This is the kind of project Spring in Our Steps likes to get involved in.
I will use the pictures and a video to engage members of the community in order to get input about how to use nature to improve the stairs and walkways. 1) share the video with spatially correct locations of degraded stairs 2) Request feedback via comments on the SFCC Facebook page 3) Track engagement by checking Facebook page analytics.
This is so great. I'm proud of our neighborhood
Using Facebook page analytics I will track engagement to the post and video.I will include a survey to encourage participation in designing the final product.
Working with Spring in Our Steps, we will place pots of native pollinator flowers near the stairs and in view of the traffic. We may try to plant native flowering trees.
I will take pictures again after the work is complete and ask for feedback so we can gage the success of the activity.
