We take the traditional community planning process and turn it upside down, breaking every detail into simple, accessible, practical explanations and applications. Teamwork and collaboration are essential ingredients of the Pomegranate Method. This process becomes richer when students of all ages, at various levels in their careers participate. Pomegranate Center presents an alternative design process that is transparent and integrated.
