Act 1: The Beginning

We arrived in Maitland Garden Village with much hope to begin our project.  We were excited to see the park for the first time, meet our team of co-researchers and get to know the people in the community.  What our team didn’t expect was the troubles, challenges and opportunities that would present themselves along the way in the first few weeks.
