Take Action – Donate to TBS



Personal Info

TBS works to mobilize urban communities around green infrastructure and produce meaningful community spaces: schoolyards, urban parks and other places.  We want everybody (the entire community) involved in the process from the beginning to end.

How We Are Different

Grassroots Community Engagement – Conversations

We amplify the voice of the community as we partner to create and move our projects forward. TBS is the backbone when needed, providing the support, planning, and infrastructure for community driven, adaptive design.  Our measure of success – resident and business ownership of the project.


TBS supports comprehensive schoolyard planning that goes beyond an outdoor classroom. Our holistic approach includes physical and academic education and addresses the social and emotional growth for children. TBS works closely with school principals, teachers and staff to design and implement a highly functional usable, educational outdoor space.

Design & Implementation

TBS sees schoolyards and parks as community development projects and we maximize community and volunteer opportunities. TBS encourages a broad spectrum of construction ranging from traditional public bid work to volunteer driven projects, and in-kind support from local businesses and contractors.
