In 2021, Designing Hope has been entrusted by Paris Habitat with the management for 4 years of the development and the animations of a green space of 300 m2 located in the heart of the Villiot-Rapée residence.
The objective is to make it a place of life and discovery of biodiversity and nature for the children of the residence, but also occasionally for young visitors from the neighborhood. Children from the Paris Amin’ Center in the neighbourhood, from the Bercy nursery and elementary schools, and from the neighborhood daycare center are welcomed to participate in nature-related discovery activities (land art, mime, outdoor theater) and to help maintain the garden.
A Mandala, a vegetable garden designed in the shape of a flower, evolves with the seasons and the contributions of the children. A vegetated teepee is a playful space for children. Growing trays, decorated with metal supports to encourage vertical cultivation, are placed in the sunniest part of the garden.
