The Gratitude Project was envisioned as a temporary interactive installation aimed at encouraging reflection and expressions of gratitude during this time.  The project is still being conceptualized; we are interested in expanding the project to include multiple installations throughout the Botanic Gardens and Arboretum.  The installations are intended to be an extension of the landscape and the messages of gratitude that individuals leave behind (strips of paper/cloth) will develop a patina/fade over time. 

This project will have several installations around the Gardens, with the first being in the Pounder Vegetable Garden Willow Hut!
