Conversation Trees is a collaboration between the Wickenden Area Merchants Association (WAMA), FPNA, the JWU Design Department, and The Steel Yard. We want to build community by creating public spaces that encourage spontaneous conversation and interaction on Wickenden Street, while updating some of the street's tree guards, which are old and in disrepair. Jonathan Harris at JWU has agreed to volunteer students' time and talents to design new tree guards for the street that would have built-in seating and include design motifs representative of Fox Point. The winning design would be produced and installed by The Steel Yard. WAMA and FPNA are currently in the process of seeking funding for this project.
