Local communities can have a powerful effect on their neighborhood environments, and sometimes all it takes is the action of a few caring individuals. With the introduction of a community garden, cleanups, regular meetings, and other healing steps, everything from neighborhood crime to pollution can begin to be remediated. This panel presents several community leaders who have taken just such steps to revitalize and green their neighborhoods, and will offer case studies of successful change and tips on kick starting community growth in your area.
