How we help
spaces flourish

Most green spaces have no legal protection and are vulnerable to development at any time. As a nonprofit land trust, we can affordably purchase a city-owned property and hold it in a community’s name for safekeeping. We provide technical assistance, basic liability coverage, and much more.

Preserved or not, we provide support to over a hundred community managed open spaces and forest patches throughout the city. Neighborhoods call us when they need the know-how, people-power, and resources to make amazing things happen.
