Friendly Front Yards: a Powerful Tool to Create Community and Walkability One Front Yard at a Time

This presentation is part of the Off the Walking Path: Creative Walkable Interventions session.

In an era when the social fabric of our communities is fraying before our eyes, there has never been a more important time for us all to engage in the exact place where we live. In response, The Musicant Group has developed the Friendly Front Yard process and toolkit, which provides a step-by-step process for people to transform the most common underutilized space in America into places that make people and their communities feel alive. With users of this process meeting on average 5.4 new neighbors each, learn how you can deploy this powerful tool in your own yard and community.
