Hester Street (HST) is working with Project Renewal (PR) to convert an underutilized lot adjacent to Third Street Shelter into a welcoming and productive green space. The yard will be used by PR’s clients as a gathering place and as an extension of their horticulture therapy and wellness programs. HST conducted a series of visioning sessions with shelter residents and staff to inform the design and programming of the lot, and is currently overseeing the build-out of the space. When complete, the renovated lot will include a greenhouse, raised planting beds, permeable paving, gathering space, and covered seating area.
