The Green neighborhoods project

The Center for a Sustainable Today's main project is The Green Neighborhoods Project. We work with local neighborhoods to create wildlife habitat throughways. We design garden spaces that work for neighborhood residents in underserved areas. Our gardens and greenways incorporate native plants and pollinator-friendly flora that enrich the lives of those who live there and their wildlife friends. We work with organizations such as Metro, East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District, The Bureau of Environmental Services, Audubon Backyard Wildlife Certification, The Intertwine, Permaculture Pathways and many others.

To facilitate the creation of green spaces for our Green Neighborhoods Project we hold local neighborhood festivals and invite the organizations that neighbors would need to connect with to complete their projects. The festival also features food, music, and habitat building workshops.
