Urban Transformations - from bare lot to flourishing business
Hosted by Together Farm and Thicket
What if you could turn a derelict lot into a thriving community garden store? Thicket has done just that. Join Thicket and TogetherFarm for a tour of what used to be a barren gravel lot but is now a thriving business with botanical curiosities, vintage finds, and modern craft to inspire life lived in the garden. Get an insider's look at what it takes to create an urban transformation and bring beauty and benefit to a neighborhood. Walk away with inspiration and a small item to start an urban transformation of your own!

What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxMtHood, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxMtHood event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
What is TEDxMtHood?
It’s an independently organized and licensed offshoot of TED, you know, the huge speaking event with “ideas worth spreading”. The event where they provide a way for us to hear great ideas from thinkers who have an idea that is changing the world. The one where amazing individuals are giving an 18-minute or less “talk of a lifetime”.
We hold a big annual event in the spring of each year with approximately 15 live speakers and several performers for 800+ attendees and TEDx Adventures throughout the year for more intimate, hands-on opportunities to interact with our speakers and their ideas worth spreading.
