Tim Razzaq gives a BOOST to this challenged city.

Trentons 30th annual Heritage Days celebration and a downtown Book Fair serve as the backdrops for the first of a series of public awareness and community mobilization forums being promoted by Building Open Opportunity Structures Together, also known as BOOST. This event will be free to the public and feature a screening of the Sundance Channel production, Big Ideas for a Small Planet and an in-person appearance one of the films featured designers. This program launch will take place on Saturday, June 7 from 11am until 4pm at Gallery 125, located at 125 South Warren Street in Downtown Trenton.

Mitchell Joachim of Terreform, a nonprofit philanthropic architectural group that focuses on ecological design for urban environments, and whose work is highlighted in Big Ideas, will conduct a slide show demonstrating his real-life tree house made of growing tree trunks, stackable cars, river gym, and other projects that reflect the Terreform mission which views ecology in design as not only a philosophy that inspires visions of sustainability and social justice but also a focused scientific endeavor.

Also, there will be presentations by Jason Kliwinski, associate with the Trenton-based Spiezle Group, one of New Jerseys leading architectural, planning, and design firms with several major projects on tap in the greater Mercer County region; Fred Stine, Citizen Action Coordinator for the Delaware Riverkeeper Network and Anastasia Harrison for WESKetch Architecture, and Elizabeth Slate-Rutledge for the Syracuse New York-based Alchemical Nursery.
