The Ivanhoe neighborhood is striving for revitalization. The neighborhood contains over 1000 vacant lots and homes due to residents leaving the neighborhood. Planting Beauty aims to beautify the lots and revitalize the neighborhood, hoping to bring in new residents and teach the youth life skills.
The system of events would encourage teens to participate in the activity of beautification. The events will take place once every two weeks in random, empty lots around the neighborhood. There will be an adult supervisor that will educate the youth about plants and gardening. (something more about design rather than event)
