Greening Homewood Clusters: Year 3

It’s Spring 2018 and Grounded Strategies is back in Homewood. During our third year of work cooperating with Operation Better Block (OBB) in a Neighborhood Partnership Program (NPP), Grounded is transforming a vacant lot at the corner of North Lang Avenue and Idlewild Street in Homewood. As part of this metamorphosis, we’re installing several amenities on site, including several play features (including a balance beam and tire jump) for children, as well as shade sails and benches for adults.

In partnership with OBB, we’ll be engaging with the Junior Green Corps (JGC) of Homewood for site implementation and maintenance. Continuing our commitment to greening vacant land in the Pittsburgh area, we hope to take into account the concerns local residents in both the design and implementation of all our projects, both in Homewood’s cluster 2 and beyond!
