Community Inspiration Project
The FGCA is currently working on the Community Inspiration Project (CIP), an asset-mapping project for the Fairfield Gonzales neighbourhood. Our goal is to collect, from residents and visitors, a list of the various assets we have in our community (which we call sources of inspiration) & hear why they are valued.
We would love to know: What are your sources of inspiration in Fairfield and Gonzales?
Questions? : firstname.lastname@example.org
Sources of inspiration received so far include natural spots like Gonzales Beach, Beacon Hill Park, or particular entry points to the ocean to community groups like November Project Victoria who meets every Wednesday morning at 6:29am outside the Beacon Hill Park Petting Zoo or the Dallas Road running group who meets 8am on Saturdays at Clover point.The responses came from people across the lifespan, including sources of inspiration which children showed to their parents (including the wonderful Dragon Sculpture found at Dallas Road!)
Some responses so far:
The Sequoiadendron at the corner of Richardson & Moss
“Every time I walk by it I get warm and fuzzy” ~ George
Ross Bay Cemetery
“A historical sight that has Emily Carr’s grave. It’s fun to count the deer; however, they are too comfortable around humans” ~ Courtney
Fairfield Food Forest
“This forest serves as a positive symbol for our community; demonstrating equity and sustainability that are possible in our community. We need more projects like this. ~ Khalilah
