As with all successful Garden Walks, there are plenty of offshoot events and undertakings that spring up in and around the respective neighborhoods. As for the East Side, The Foundry is hosting an ‘open house’ event that will showcase numerous projects and initiatives that are underway. One of the programs that The Foundry is most excited about is their Youth Entrepreneurship Program. The program aims to get young people interacting with makerspaces that include areas in technology, textiles, metal, and wood.

On the day of the open house, visitors will have a chance to meet The Foundry’s new Youth Business Director and FoundryMade Manager, Adam Ianni (lead image). Ianni was formerly the Education Director for GObike Buffalo. For anyone looking to take a ‘beginning woodworking’ class with Ianni, he will be teaching people how to build a cornhole game on Thursday, July 22 (learn more).
