Join us for a presentation of great ideas for greening schoolyards, the result of an all-day design charrette exploring how we can create greener, more sustainable schoolyards in Philadelphia.

Transforming Urban Schoolyards will present design concepts for greening two Philadelphia public schools—Lea Elementary School in West Philadelphia and Kelly Elementary School in Germantown—and offer inspiring models for greening schoolyards throughout the city.

Green schoolyards are a key strategy in Green City, Clean Waters, Philadelphia’s innovative 25-year stormwater management plan. See how Greenfield Elementary School is contributing…

Get engaged and ready to green your neighborhood school—and be part of a public conversation about the impact of greening schoolyards throughout the city. Reception to follow.

Free and open to the public. RSVP
