Green Light is proud to announce the success of a collaborative partnership with the Urban Conversancy, SOUL, and Youth Rebuilding New Orleans! For the past year, the Healthy Block Initiative has been working in a 4 block area surrounding the 2700 block of St. Ann to address neighborhood flooding, pollution, sinking, air temperatures, and energy bills!
Together the partnership removed 500+ SF of paving, installed 10 rain barrels, planted 30-40 trees, and created green sector job training opportunities.
Green Light is excited to undertake a similar project with the Urban Conservancy and SOUL in the Hoffman Triangle after the New Year! We love our community partners and encourage Green Light supporters to look into and support the amazing work these organizations are doing! Look for more updates in 2019!
