2018 Greenspace Report

Neighbor works is a new community Greenspace group. Even though they started within the final few weeks of the program, they were able to build constituency, reach consensus on a vision for the neighborhood, and plant two trees. They are a group packed full of character, energy, and care for the environment. Many of the streets that encompass their work area are without trees, and this group is anxious to fix that. They’re excited to hit the ground running at the cusp of the 2019 planting season.
