CommunityCare Larimer

Grounded launched the CommunityCare Larimer Project in 2018. Due to the high concentration of vacant lots (there are approximately 685 vacant lots located in the neighborhood), the CommunityCare program was adapted to focus on cleaning up vacant lots. Through the program, 5 participants were recruited that went through a series of workshops in order to adopt 9 vacant parcels throughout Larimer. These sites have been transformed into green spaces that have a small flower bed feature. The stewards actively maintain their assigned parcels throughout the growing season.

Funding for the CommunityCare Larimer Project was provided by the Katherine Neeb McCrady Fund of The Pittsburgh Foundation.
