Project Description:

This project will pursue the development of an environmental education/renewable clean energy/cultural arts site, on a vacant lot which the group owns. Funding will be used to match other potential resources to further their goal to combine an outdoor environmental education component with cultural aspects of the Treme community. They will continue to use artwork to draw in community members to then be able to explain how these small green infrastructure projects that they have already installed help reduce flooding and why increasing green infrastructure is important to the environment and health. The artwork is a link to the community and opens doors to have conversations about green infrastructure, climate change, and what we all can do to combat its effects.
