Patrick Schuman, a landscape architect, is now a member of the team at Kivy Garden, a nonprofit that promotes garden architecture and urban design.
He joins a growing roster of garden architects and landscape designers who have been hired by the nonprofit, which has been in the works for years.
The new hires include landscape architect and designer, Brian Hennigan, as well as landscape architect/designer, David Rutter, and landscape architecture/designers, John Koppelman, Matthew Smith, and David Shinn.
Kiva’s Kiva Greenway, a project designed by landscape architecture and design firm, Kiva Partners, was launched in September 2018.
The program is funded by a grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and it aims to create a new way for people to enjoy nature through a mix of design, technology, and public art.
The garden is a part of that, with an emphasis on a wide range of landscaping options, including trees, shrubs, plants, and native plants.
The gardens are located at Kivette Gardens, a public garden and outdoor nature center in downtown Denver, and the Kivys are a part the Kivets Creek Greenway program.
“The garden’s design is based on the fact that people want to be able to explore, so we wanted to do something that was more accessible to people,” said John Kohnelman, who helped create the gardens at KIVY Gardens.
“We’ve tried to use all of the elements that we know that are important to people, like the plants, the flowers, the animals, the natural surroundings.
We’ve tried different types of lighting, but we also tried to do it in a way that allows people to experience nature through nature.”
In addition to designing gardens, Schuman works as an associate professor of landscape architecture at The University of Colorado, Boulder.
He also enjoys hiking, biking, and birdwatching, but he also enjoys nature, and that passion led him to the Kiva program.
Schuman said that he and his wife, Stephanie, were originally drawn to gardening because it was the most affordable option for them.
“It’s really easy to get up early, but the hours are so long,” he said.
“I think the beauty of gardening is that it’s a sustainable activity, and so if you do a lot of gardening, you can save money on the electricity bill.”
Schuman also likes the idea of bringing together people who are in different fields of study.
“A lot of people are interested in architecture, but they don’t know what to do with the land, or they don-t know what kind of landscape they should build,” he added.
“They can’t work together and come up with something.
So it’s really nice to have people that know each other, and be able connect on that level.”
KivY Garden will work to promote the program’s vision by partnering with local organizations.
Kivymagewire.org, the website created by Kiva for its partners, is a place where users can submit information on their gardens and gardens that they are interested.
It is a community-based resource for garden designers, landscape architects, landscape design firms, and other gardeners interested in joining the Kivalas team.
The Kiva community garden program will launch at the end of September and will offer a variety of opportunities to gardeners and gardeners of all skill levels.
The Garden of the People is part of Kivylakea, a cooperative initiative in Boulder designed to give local residents access to nature and outdoor recreation.
In 2016, the City of Boulder voted to increase access to open spaces in the City, including green spaces, trails, and parks.
Kivaly Garden will offer its community gardens a similar level of access to the city’s open spaces, and to other areas of the city.
“When we started Kivygarden, we really wanted to build a garden that was part of the larger community and that was really connected to the Boulder community,” Kivyn said.
The community garden will be a place for people of all levels of experience to connect and share their gardens.
The city will also work with the gardens to support its new parks, greenways, trails and playgrounds.
KIVy Garden is in the process of recruiting more gardeners to join the program, but as of September 2018, the program had just three active gardeners.
The project is currently looking for a landscaper to help with the design and construction of the gardens, and a landscape architecture contractor to work on the landscaping.
Kivas Greenway is scheduled to open to the public in early 2019, and Kivies will be open to public in spring 2019.
