We held our first meeting Wednesday 2/24. We will start with contacting a local pressure washer company here in Town about pressure washing the wall and cleaning off the dead ivy. This will need to be done before we hang the overhead outdoor/patio string lights. We have a meeting with 2 local landscapers to help us layout the best plan for the Thinkscape space along with helping design our Jumping Feet layout and what space might be the best for a possible Puzzle Wall. We will use some of the seed funding to provide planters, plants, stones for the Jumping Feet. As we gather information on the puzzle wall we will look at that expense and the possibility of having that installed. We will be installing a living free library in the Thinkscape space along with working with a local artist to do some local maps of the County/Town on some of the wall space. Some of the seed funding will help with purchase of materials needed for the living free library. We have a local contractor who has graciously agreed to build the free library free of charge.We want some of the wall space to be available for a chalk art wall or space where kids can work out math problems if needed. Local business is providing free WiFi for the space. We will have bistro tables/benches available where the community can sit and do school or office work if needed. Once open to the public we will have sanitizing stations available along with requiring face coverings. One of our group members has reached out to the school system not only about this being an opportunity for school kids to get some volunteer hours if needed but to also work with our local school system to help promote and possibly partner with them. Once we have planters in place we will create a public event inviting the community to bring the kids out to help with the plantings. This space can be utilized by all school age kids.This seed funding gives us an opportunity to turn an under utilized space into a safe Urban Thinkscape space for all community kids to come play and learn outside!
