Community Table

The community table at the eatery (northwest end of the artery) links and unites locals through shared meals. The community table at the eatery is a project built to link and unite locals through the greatest leveling agent known to man: food. Located on an overpass of Capitol Drive, this 100’ table transformed this transitional space into a place for public gathering. It hosts one community potluck per month over the summer seasons with the support of a number of local partnerships.

Located on an overpass of Capitol Drive, this 94’ long table was built out of salvaged wood, and transformed this transitional space into a place for public gathering. It hosts one community potluck per month over the summer seasons, also known as beeBques, with the support of a number of local partnerships.  During these events, 22 benches also made of reclaimed materials, are set up to providing seating for up to 110 people.  A dead oak tree is the centerpiece of the table; wrapped in solar powered LED lights, this has been referred to by neighbors as the tree of life.  The community table also doubles as a quarter inch site model of the GIbson Yards, which is the 8 acre site that is home to the artery.  In 2015, this will be utilized to engage neighbors and design professionals to charette and design the new Beerline extension from Keefe and Richards to Capitol Drive.
