What if greening our city was a game? What if it played out in real life, and the game board was comprised of our schoolyard, backyards, parking lots, and vacant lots? What if the object was to create, care for, and connect biodiverse landscapes that, together, improve quality of life for all? In this interactive session connecting ecological landscape design principles, urban planning, community dynamics, and citizen stewardship, participants will play (and help hone) a prototype game using their own communities as the ultimate game-board of life.
