The Community Outreach Group for Landscape Design (COGdesign) strengthens under-served communities by creating and improving neighborhood green spaces. They work in partnership with local organizations to provide pro bono landscape design services.

COGdesign has completed over 80 community-initiated landscape design projects in Massachusetts. More than 90 designers have participated in these projects. By revitalizing community sites, they make it possible for everyone to benefit from the restorative power of green spaces. COGdesign connects neighborhood organizations with designers and resources for successful landscape development.

COGdesign partners with a range of community-based organizations such as affordable housing groups, community gardens, schools, houses of worship, historic sites, park and neighborhood associations, and other non-profit and municipal entities.
