World Garden Commons at Rabanus Park is the pilot site of The Fargo Project, in Fargo, North Dakota.

World Garden Commons at Rabanus Park demonstrates how an undervalued water resource can become an inviting public space that connects people to natural systems that are grounded in aesthetic understandings. World Garden Commons, the pilot site for The Fargo Project is featured in a new publication focused on environmental stability.

Environmental sustainability is at its root about the health, safety, and long-term integrity of the places where we all live, work, and play. It is with this in mind that ArtPlace releases its latest cross-sector field scan: Farther, Faster, Together: How Arts and Culture Can Accelerate Environmental Progress. Researched and written by Helicon Collaborative, it lays out a framework for understanding how place-based arts and cultural interventions, or “creative placemaking,” are advancing sustainability outcomes in communities.

Read about the 5 things the arts can do for the environment. See page 27 in the field scan to read about The Fargo Project’s creative placemaking practice.
