What is Steem Park?

“Steem Park” is an interactive community garden in the heart of Brooklyn, New York. Located within the historic Herbert von King Park: Steem Park is a pop-up installation that will be used to host Steemit meetups, local community events, workshops and dozens of activities throughout the year.

Support!

This project will be created, constructed and maintained with 100% STEEM, SBD and cryptocurrency donations! Your upvotes and donations will help make this community garden a reality. In return, we have some amazing awards for you. What will your Steem and SBD get you?

Good For Community, Good for Steemit

This new neighborhood hotspot in the heart of Brooklyn will act as a colorful and dynamic billboard for the Steemit community. We @hitheryon believe that this physical design project is an important and exciting proof of concept for Steem and Steemit. We want to build something physical, lasting and impactful with cryptocurrency. Tens of thousands of people will visit Steem Park this summer. Our team will host Steemit workshops and events for the purpose of onboarding community members and activists to the Steemit platform (this includes park visitors, park representatives, volunteers, local residents and more!)

Upvotes and donations will translate directly to funding for furniture, events, park maintenance, beautification and restoration for a neighborhood in need. This project is about discovering new ways of using Steem for social good!

Let’s Do This

Let’s get physical and take this online community to the next level. We need YOUR upvotes, donations, re-steems and word of mouth to spread this project far and wide.

NOTE : 100% of the payout rewards from this post will go towards the realization of the Steem Park project. Thank you all so much for your support. We are thrilled to launch the fundraising phase of this project with you today and hope that these goals resonate with you and your vision for the future of Steemit. Steem on!

This is a really exiting project! I wish you the best of luck achieving it :) It is also really exciting to see a Kickstarter-type of project here in Steemit. I think this platform has a huge potential for projects like these, and it will be exciting to see how this turns out ;)

Anyway, I really like the idea of a physical space like this. Not only will it be a great ad campaign for Steemit, it will also be very nice for families and others who wish to use the park. I think it is great that local people can benefit from the project as well as Steemit :)

·

Steemit has so much potential here. As designers, we hope that this is just the beginning. Thank you for the thoughtful and supportive comment @valth :)

This is excellent. Good luck with the project!

·

Thanks for your support @robrigo!

·
·

No prob! If you all consider accepting Bitshares I'd be happy to donate some to the cause. :-) Otherwise when I get my next powerdown I'll shoot you a contribution.

·
·
·

Fantastic! As of now we don't have a means of accepting Bitshares, but will look more into that today (and keep you posted).

Awesome project! This will certainly raise more awareness for steem and get us to the next level. I wish you all the best with this project and will follow development on this closely.

·

Great! Thanks @tarekadam, stay tuned for more. Let's take Steem to the next level together!

·
·

Yes, sounds very good to me!

Interesting project, hope it works out.

·

Thanks @saiku we're working very hard behind the scenes to make sure that it does!

looks like an exciting project, great idea

·

Thanks @doitvoluntarily! Great to have your support :)

Wow, I really love this idea!

One question: If I want to buy one of the deliverable items, should I give my email address at the transfer comment?

·

@orenshani7, hello again! Our team just posted a restructuring of the rewards (below). A 50 SBD donation now gets you a 3D printed flower. Please let us know if that is okay with you!

https://steemit.com/steemitpark/@hitheryon/support-steemit-park-a-summer-garden-in-brooklyn-updated-rewards

·
·

So I am going to get the flower instead of the artwork? Cool. And you will ship it all the Way to Israel?

·
·
·

If that's okay with you! And yes, of course!

·
·
·
·

Okay so how can I send you my Mail-to address? Discord?

·
·
·
·
·

We'll be reaching out individually within a few weeks. (Flowers will be ready in a couple months!) We'll probably request that people send their mail address to us via steemit.chat or email (whichever they feel comfortable with).

·

Great question! Yes if you feel comfortable leaving your email address in the transfer memo, please do. Otherwise, you can message us directly on steemit.chat @hitheryon

Thank you for your support!

·

Thank you! Your generous donation represents a big leap towards making this project a reality. We're excited to design your art-print :)

+ we are now following you!

Very good idea and the best of luck going forward.

·

Thank you @team101 :-D

that's A-MA-ZING! I wish I have funds to support you.

·

Thank you Paolo! Your upvotes and positive comments are support in themselves! (In the coming weeks we'll be releasing ways that people can contribute who do not have funds on hand, stay tuned.)

·
·

This is cool! I'm looking forward to seeing how we as a community can contribute to the projects in other ways than donating money :) I'm sure there are many people that wish to help out, but don't have much money to spare.

CHAMPION! :-)

·

Thanks so much for your support @rok-sivante!! :)

It's great to see this brilliant project getting traction. Fantastic! Supported :)

·

Thank you so much for your support!! :)

Very nice idea! Upvote, Follow and resteem!! 😉

·

Thank you for your support and kind words :D stay tuned for more!

This is a brilliant idea, wishing you all the very best and will be watching your progress.

·

We're very appreciative of the kind feedback and support @daisyd :)

Nice post!

·

Thank you! :-D

·
·

You are welcome :)

You guys are so great. I am absolutely thrilled to read about this. You guys are genuinely making a difference with Steem. Cheers and congrats are in order!!!!

·

That means a lot @fairytalelife, as always thank you so much for your support and enthusiasm through and through. It's been a wild year, we're super excited to bring some early ideas to fruition this summer!!

Shoooot!! I used to live a few blocks from this park @hitheryon so this is blowing my mind.

You are KILLING IT! The biggest pain point in cryptocurrency, for me at least, is the lack of real world community stuff. So seeing this, a way of putting the Steem ecosystem into the real world, is rad to see.

It may not be much, but I hope my 5 SBD donation helps a little bit to push your project forward. cheers

·

THANK YOU! You sir are our first donation supporter! Your donation represents a big leap towards making this project a reality. As promised, we'll be giving you a shout out on our website. Come back and visit the neighborhood this summer!!

+ we are now following you!

·
·

glad to help :-)

Amazing project ! Nice example for many others to create such parks all around the world.

·

Thanks @mammasitta! We appreciate your kind words and support :)

very cool idea. i am also looking for "real life" projects to involve Steem...

·

Thanks for the support @blocklab! We're excited to get this design-build experiment off the ground :)

·
·

looking forward to further footage. Video?

·
·
·

Yes! We'll be documenting every step of the process. More videos to come within a couple weeks. Once we raise enough to begin fabrication of benches and planters I think we'll have some really great footage to share :)

What a great project! Is there a plan somewhere for the plants to be used? I would love to see the list!

·

Of course! We're working with the Hebert von King Park conservancy and a landscape architect to draw up a list of plants + plus a schedule of when and where they will be planted. We should have the final list available next week. (We'd love to get your feedback on it!)

·
·

BTW, I re-steemed ;-)

·
·

I'm sure they'll do a wonderful plan...I was mostly just curious, but happy to weigh in ;-) Next time I'm in Brooklyn I'll check out the park!

·
·
·

Fantastic, we would be thrilled to give your a tour!

exciting kick-ass project - well thought, good luck!

·

Thanks so much @uwelang!!

Great idea! Join and support. Maybe someday will be able to visit Steem in the Park. Good luck with this project.

·

We can't wait to have a IRL steemit meetup! Definitely come visit towards the end of summer :)

·

Also, thank you for your support!

now following you :D

great, really great!! I'll contribute soon, need to accumulate a few SBDs...

·

Thanks so much @natureofbeing!! :D

this is a mega cool initiative!! I want to see it trending.
Hope it goes well, send it to steemitinc!

·

Steemit's Community Liaison, andrarchy just resteemed it! Thanks for your support @razvanelulmarin :)

·
·

:) andrarchy is a good nyorker :)

This is awesome.

I must admit, I would really like a picture of Pepe the Frog somewhere. I would donate for this :)

·

Go ahead!

This is such an AMAZING idea! Wow. Thank you for starting this. Best of luck moving forward to turn this into a reality!

That's awesome!!
Thanks for posting often!! It's always nice to see passion put into action!!!
Following and voted!!!

I really love the concept of a community garden that can be a venue for workshops and other events, being financed by Steem. I'm not sure how much space you actually will have but if space is a limitation, have you considered vertical plant walls? Could be in the shape of the letters: 🌿S🌿T🌿E🌿E🌿M🌿I🌿T🌿 perhaps?

Also will you consider edible plants, grown organically of course, as part of the garden? Could generate an income to maintain the garden or provide food to those who most need it.

Love the idea of the Brooklyn Steem Park being just the first of many iconic community gardens all over the world. 🙏🌳🌿🍄🌿🌳🙏
