Bayshore Christian Ministries Project: From Gray to Green

We’re excited to share recent progress made on the Bayshore Christian Ministries (BCM) revitalization project to transform their empty field into a vibrant green space for the community in East Palo Alto. Canopy’s Teen Urban Foresters (TUF) held a design charrette during BCM’s Community Day on August 1st to gather input.

Over 50 community members participated, sharing their ideas and preferences for the space. Afterwards, the TUFs consolidated and synthesized the findings to pass onto PlaceWorks, a landscape design firm, to finalize the design. The fall cohort of TUFs will organize a planting event on November 16th to install the trees and landscape features of the design. See more photos from the day and stay tuned for details on the final design !
