What's «green infrastructure» look like in your own backyard?

Come tour a rain-friendly yard with Andreas Hoffmann (Green Light New Orleans) & Dana Eness (The Urban Conservancy) to find out!

From installing rain barrels to planting edible gardens to swapping all that pavement for some native plants-- turn your yard into part of your neighborhood's stormwater solution!

Cost: $5

**NOTE: When you arrive, please come to the backyard (enter through the front gate and follow the left side of the house to the backyard).

Read about The Urban Conservancy's Front Yard Initiative (an incentive program that reimburses homeowners for removing excessive pavement from their property) here: urbanconservancy.org/project/fyi/.
