we engage people to envision and create green spaces for their communities

Design Wild supports community groups, city agencies, businesses, and design teams to design and build green spaces in communities across the city. Firmly rooted in community organizing and participatory design principals, we believe that connecting people to the natural world begins by listening and learning. We seek to facilitate projects in which people can design, build and share the responsibility of caring for new wild spaces.


This summer our new garden, at Artspace PS109, has attracted a praying mantis, dozens of honey bees, a variety of butterflies and the smiles of our community. It was an extreme joy and blessing to work with Design Wild!
