Its's Easy Being Green - Over the years the city of Chicago has embarked on many endeavors to green prime parts of the city. However, while many of Chicago green initiatives has been a success; other less popular locations has fallen to the way side. As a non-profit organization we believe it is our call to provide education to the underserved masses in Chicago on how to grow up green.
Our project will begin in a community that is very popular in Chicago for it high rates of drop-outs, violence, impoverished living and abandoned buildings. This community has seen many struggles and changes over the years but we believe that this community can become a great and central green hub of the city of Chicago.
