How do you get hundreds of people across many communities to establish a shared vision for the future?
Pomegranate Center has applied our model to parks, neighborhoods, schools, and other public spaces. Now, we’re applying our model to one of the biggest crises facing our city and our country: homelessness and affordable housing.
A wetland is a habitat of rich biodiversity. A neighborhood is a habitat of rich cultural diversity. What happens when a neighborhood has the opportunity to restore a wetland and integrate it into the surrounding community? Pomegranate Center has been working to discover that answer all year through our collaboration with the Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association (DNDA) on the Delridge Wetlands.
At the start of 2017, friend of Pomegranate Nancy Nordhoff pledged a $37,000 challenge grant to support us in our critical transition period. That means we need to raise money from our supporters in order to match the pledged funding.
