Holland Maze Literacy Park
NW Goldberg Cares
NW Goldberg Cares aims to improve upon the lives of residents in the predominantly African-American community by incubating neighborhood businesses, building a strong community, and ensuring a family-friendly neighborhood. Formerly known as ORIGINAL CREATIVITY, the non-profit seeks to create a sense of fellowship, and recognizes that a community is more than a group of people living in the same place.
NW Goldberg Cares will use their Working with Lots Grant to install the Holland Maze Lot Design, inspired by the tulip fields of Holland with rows of lavender and a small rain garden. This project will be an opportunity to share the benefits of planting a garden with the neighborhood, repurposing space within for creatively, intentionally, and beautifully-designed community space. They want to show residents that together, they can actively change land, which can lead to the creation of a strong and revitalized neighborhood.
