Visitors and tourists will also be able to participate in making this souvenir as well as take home their gift. As well as these attributes, this site will also provide a community hub for the general public and the locals where they will beable to participate in the upkeep of the community garden which will provide food for the cafe as sell as use the new Bocce ball courts.
