Design your own garden space – through drawings and models. Think about where in the community you would place your garden. Who would your garden be for? What would you invite visitors to do in your garden? What natural elements would be in your garden? What manmade elements would exist in your garden? What would you want visitors to feel in your garden?
Create a sound piece for your garden. What instruments would you use? How would you create sounds that match the theme of your garden?
