  • Community Meetup/Workshop

Also, as part of our onboarding and sustainable community building, we plan on hosting an onboarding workshop/meetup event. This will also incorporate a DJ and soundsystem setup workshop.

Upon obtaining the DJ decks we would love to have a community event where we have an open decks to introduce people to DJ’ing, giving tutorials along with workshops on how to run and maintain a simple soundsystem setup.

This event will also feature a Metaverse livestream in partnership with Muti and also with Ourico Studios. This community meetup will also feature onboarding for anyone wanting to be introduced to the Near ecosystem.

This community aspect is very important to Garden going forward. As the people power that comes with getting together with people and linking through music, culture and workshops is a powerful tool for the awareness and future of the collective and DAO. It also acts as a sort of showcase for Garden, in relation to our soundsystem, DJ decks and equipment which we have available for rent. This feeds back into the self-sustainability of Garden Collective going forward.

  • Garden Collective which already acts as a legal entity as a collective will create a “legal wrapper” as a DAO in June. This will be done with Otoco.

  • We have expected future collaborations with existing collectives with opportunities to onboard new collaborators (i.e. Muti, Ourico, Waking Life crew)
