Mark your calendars! On May 20th, Milenko will join friend of Pomegranate Center Mark Okazaki to return to the project they collaborated on over ten years ago. Hosted by Atlas Obscura, the “friendly tour-guide to the world’s most wondrous places,” Milenko and Mark will lead participants on an afternoon tour through the garden and share its history, as well as tell stories from their experience working with the local High Point community to design an amphitheater, pocket parks, shelters, and the community garden.

Here at Pomegranate, we’ve long believed that a school playground is more than a place for kids to run around at recess. It’s a community gathering place where kids connect with the outdoors through open-ended learning. We also know that the process of designing and building a playground is more than a construction project. It’s an opportunity to bring a school’s community together and create a rich platform for student learning and legacy.
This episode features an interview with Ron Sher, the founder of Third Place Books and founder and CEO of Sher Partners, a family real estate development, management, and investment firm. Ron has long been active in the community with special emphasis on the role of urbanism and preservation of the environment.
