“PHS LandCare: Transforming Vacant Lots into Community Assets"

Samir Dalal, the planning manager of the LandCare program, run by the Pennsylvania Horticulture Society, will share with us how more than 12,000 empty lots in low and moderate income neighborhoods in Philadelphia were transformed into green spaces. These transformed lots have become community assets, benefiting the local ecology as well as the health of those living nearby, and have spurred economic growth in these neighborhoods. A truly inspiring story!
