Standing in between the wild and the city, City of Santa Paula was first known for its prosperous citrus industry. The city, whose people has been co-living with climate change long before we addressed it, benefits from rich soil brought by the water and also faced a major issue as many of its brother and sister, Urbanization. How can we landscape designer place ourselves at this changing condition? Based on its special location, three thematic sites are proposed as test plots to bring up a conversation about how the city in such wild surrounding can grow with its environment.
