Plant small orchards of fruit trees in gardens and on common land along paths and streets, in parks, in neighborhoods,
wherever there are well-established groups that can themselves care for the trees and harvest the fruit. from A Pattern Language #170 Fruit Trees*

Cafe Hope
"Visions in Red", false Spiraea
Create an inviting and comfortable space for both individuals and families with elders or children. The waiting room becomes less clinical and reduces stress associated with being at a doctors office.
Slow down entry into the building by taking advantage of the large open space and adding free-standing elements that pull people in to experiences of art, relaxation, music, and learning.

These elements play in to the original intention of the currently underused fountain space.
Front Entrance
Open the space for more seating, providing additional opportunity for community connectedness.

Increase capacity for meal & food options which can both showcase local food entrepreneurs and strategically increase profit for Cafe Hope.
