Vacant lots in your neighborhood can illustrate neglect and seem like a waste of space. But, these open spaces can also serve as clean canvases for creative community projects that bring positive change.
Interested in learning from leaders and thinkers who have transformed vacant places into vibrant green spaces? Hear from Sandra Albro, author of “Vacant to Vibrant: Creating Successful Green Infrastructure Networks”, (Island Press, 2019) and project leaders who work with ioby (in our backyards) about how to turn ideas for transforming vacant lots into reality.
