The time for “Do less harm” has passed. It’s time for the beginning of being; the beginning of a Living Future. Join us next April for Living Future 2015. We’ll explore a genuine sense of place and community as the bellwether of truly restorative design.

Legacy Project: Pollinator Pathway

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Get your hands dirty at the LF15 Legacy Project! Volunteers will be preparing beds for Sedum, Snowberry, Oregon Grape and Camas. Wear comfortable, weather-proof clothes, tools and gloves will be supplied at the project. A delicious, organic lunch is included. Don't forget a water bottle, it's hard work!

The Living Future 2015 Legacy Project is The Pollinator Pathway, a global design project created by interdisciplinary designer Sarah Bergmann that imagines a new relationship between human and natural systems. The Pollinator Pathway combines ecology, design thinking, and participation to create design projects connecting cities, farmland, and national parks. All Pollinator Pathways are built to criteria and are either designed by Bergmann or are built in partnership with a variety of entities including governments, design and architecture firms, corporations and non­governmental organizations. The Pollinator Pathway is a response to open questions about nature in our time, one that acknowledges humanity’s design role in natural systems.

Bergmann’s first project, on Seattle’s Columbia Street, is a mile long, 24 foot wide renegade park that connects the Seattle University campus with a small woods called Nora’s Woods using planting strips owned by the City. Pollinator Pathway Two, in partnership with Capitol Hill Housing, is in development and will connect Seattle University to Volunteer Park, passing through one of the densest residential neighborhoods in Seattle. The Pollinator Pathway is a reflection of Bergmann’s interdisciplinary work and collaborations crossing the fields of design, art, and science, and will be the subject of a large­scale exhibition in 2016­-17.
