Green infrastructure is not impossible: it is imperative. Thankfully, we can act to reduce the impacts of climate change and flooding in our neighborhoods. While beautifying an empty lot, I Dig It is taking action to remediate the climate change crisis and making our streets safer. By mitigating storm water run off, planting native pollinators species, and, with loving care, I Dig It maintains the Galvez Garden. I Dig It intends to grow something more than just beautiful landscapes. Rather, the site is intended on being a powerful opportunity to explore and marvel in the gifts of curated land stewardship. Building community, we call on all y’all to be a part of it. Let’s grow together!
