Project Description:

This group will continue to build and advance green infrastructure through community education. They will establish an Urban Agricultural Green Infrastructure site that satisfies the dual purpose of addressing repetitive flooding via green infrastructure techniques, and helping increase access to healthy food choices for residents. In a pilot program based on a community needs assessment, residents were interested in learning home-based growing techniques in order to increase food security while applying green infrastructure interventions.
