O.N.E. Mile avoids certain terms like weeds and vacant lots. We consider the landscape, no matter how un-coiffed, an incredible urban asset. Constantly shifting, growing, taking shape, it is living matter in a state of motion. Managing and transforming the landscape into an inhabitable civic resource takes a lot of effort and sweat equity. As a result, we work with a broad network of gardeners and volunteers on projects that take advantage of the North End’s open-ended landscape and work to make it public, usable, and beautiful for everyone to enjoy.
