In 2008, ASLA introduced the tradition of gifting a Legacy Project to the city hosting the annual meeting and EXPO. Local chapter ASLA members team with local affiliates of the ACE Mentor Program to design a project using products donated by our generous EXPO exhibitors. Many EXPO exhibitors have participated, allowing the ASLA to make a lasting contribution to the host city.
With the Annual Meeting in Boston this coming November, the ASLA and the Boston Society of Landscape Architects (BSLA) is partnering with the ACE Mentor Program to provide a new schoolyard to the Patrick J Kennedy K-8 School in East Boston. The BSLA will work with ACE Mentor students to upgrade the school’s facilities with new play equipment, site furnishings and planters.
With initial discussions and planning with the PJK in its early stages, this blog will post periodic updates of our process.
