In a re-examination of the traditional conservatory, this project aims to bring back pre-settlement plant life. The Hiawatha area of Minneapolis was once a prairie, with a large variety of plant species. Today the Hiawatha trail is surrounded by mowed lawns, often behind fences. The people who live in this area are not the residents of pre-settlement times however. They should be given agency over what plants are brought back to the area. By lining the Hiawatha trail with planters displaying over 100 plant species, with information on the species, and localizing seed bomb distribution sites, residents can learn about the plants that used to reside here, and choose what and where to re-introduce to the area. The visualizations for this project were done through Sketchup, Illustator, and photography
