The “Lots of Possibility” competition is challenging the community to come up with innovative and bold ideas for how to use our vacant and abandon properties. To help get the creative solutions flowing on the subject, the Urban Design Studio and OpportunitySpace are hosting a weekend workshop on January 25th and 26th at the Urban Design Studio. Whether you are interested in submitting a proposal for the competition, or simply want to engage with others to develop creative ideas to activate our vacant and abandon properties, you won’t want to miss these free workshops.

Louisville Food System Prezi

In June of 2013, Food in Neighborhoods Community Coalition sought to create a new table where community members and activists could meet and have their voices heard. The June meeting sparked a conversation that led to the collection of “needs” that were identified by community members.  As a result of that meeting, Presbyterian Hunger Program AmeriCorps VISTAs, Emily Sprawls and Amber Burns, began researching the many food related assets that could be used to addressed the identified needs. They have combined this information and created a prezi outlining the Louisville Food System. The link is listed below.
