    We are in the process of designing an outdoor kitchen and event facility at the Dr. John Wilson Community Garden in Black Mountain, NC. We are currently looking for funding which will provide for two permanent 20 foot tables with roofs that will lie perpendicular to the current barn. A hole will be cut into the side of the barn and framed to create a small stage between the tables. Parallel to the barn at the end of the tables will be our "state-of-the-art equipment" and counter space. Like the designers from Munich, I have been envisioning this space as our community's kitchen--a place where everyone in our community can gather around food and develop friendship.

    I am creating something like this at my campus. We are in the process of creating four pocket gardens outside of our dorm. We will host Friday night dinners at the garden. I plan to have a space where people can perform while people eat and talk. We have tables already but I was thinking of putting a long table in the middle of all of the raised beds. Is there something special about these kinds of tables?

      That's great! I love the idea of using gardens. Will people be cooking, too? I don't think that the tables in their design are that unusual—they just thought carefully about the arrangement of everything in order to bring people together as much as possible.
