Ivy City 
Kendall St NE between Okie and Galludet Streets 
Washington, D.C. 

I partnered with the ANC Commissioner Sebrena Rhodes, community organizing nonprofit Empower DC, and floral design team Sweet Root Village to create a pop-up park in Ivy City as a peaceful protest to reclaim the Crummell School grounds and prototype for a flourishing public green space.

The pop-up park included over 3,000 flower stems and over 1,300 sq ft of sod within a neighborhood block party.

A few weeks after our community gathering, Mayor Bowser announced she would include $20 million in her budget to restore the Crummell School into a community center.
