Join us as we talk, tour, and play in , an ambitious project taking a vacant 9,000-sf parking lot and transforming it into a healing space to help SOMA recover from the devastating mental, physical, and economic effects of COVID-19. Kapwa Gardens is located in the SOMA Pilipinas Cultural District and is destined to become a new cultural anchor. Bold colors, swing bamboo trees, living walls, and psychedelic murals makes Kapwa Gardens a unique urbanist project. Over 350 volunteers came together to build Kapwa Gardens during the height of the pandemic.
