How is it possible to match local urgencies with a long term plan?

In São Paulo, the community asked for a space to receive visitors and promote activities inside the garden. We envisioned that the garden could be much more than just a space for events, but realized that it was important to work ‘with’ the gardeners, not only ‘for’ them. The team decided that, as a first intervention we should collectively build the infrastructure that was needed, and additionally, prototype an event. As the next step, we then produced a plan showing how to develop the space further to accommodate different scenarios.
