Working with Fire 2 Flourish research team, this project steps through a workshop design located in the Orara Valley, through architectural design outcomes in response to the workshop, a strategic framework for the community and future placemaking resources for other regional communities.
The Orara Valley communities have identified that they become isolated and cut off during times of disaster. In response to this, the community would like to see more focus on food security locally. 67% of participants in the workshop mentioned that a community garden for food security is something they would like for their communities. For this project proposal, the Glenreagh School of Arts Hall will be used as the case study building to make alterations to meet better food security and open access to these resources in resilience and everyday modes.
