The longer I look at this one-page summary statement, the more important and intimidating it becomes. Aside from the primarily visual representations on the three boards, this statement is our only chance to really explain our concepts, intentions, and goals. We have a lot of ideas out there, that can and have worked cohesively, but I've got to admit that writing about it is challenging - it's forcing me to confront every "conceptual gap," if that makes sense. So...I've got some questions to throw out there, for clarification:
- How will our "ecotones" really foster a better understanding of natural systems and processes?
- Because phasing is required in our proposal, and considering Parrish's comment (that first phase includes what you actually intend to build, while second and third phases will most likely will never get built) what is the itemized breakdown of phases? In other words, what are we building immediately, and what are we suggesting (nicely rendered examples)?
- Do we have specific information on how the community garden would operate, that I could use for elaboration?
I'd appreciate it if everyone weighed in on this. Appreciate it.
