Here in the Green Thumb we are all about placemaking. So what does that mean?

  • Placemaking is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces.
  • Placemaking capitalizes on a local community’s assets, inspiration, and potential, with the intention of creating public spaces that promote people’s health, happiness, and well being.
  • Placemaking provides a rich and diverse community experience, so your play is as fulfilling as your work.

Our workers know that they don’t have to sacrifice. They can have a fulfilling career, an active outdoors lifestyle, and access to high-end eating, shopping and entertainment options.

We are defining placemaking for the next generation of workers. Come see what placemaking looks like in the Green Thumb.
