Architect Glen Dake has created a modernist-looking design for the community garden at Villa Parke Community Center, for which Pasadena Community Gardens Conservancy is the city’s official community partner and a major supporter.
The following pages show the designs for the main garden of raised beds, which will be located – for security purposes – on the second floor outdoor patio of the center.
In addition, the designer has created a “Head Start Garden” to serve the families of Villa Parke’s 100 four-year-olds attending this pre-school program. This will include in-ground trees, raised beds, and mobile containers, all located in an outdoor playground space.
Please plan to join Pasadena Community Gardens Conservancy at Villa Parke on Saturday, January 25, 2014, as the gardens are unveiled to the community!
