Greenworks' Werbin project receives award from Oregon Community Trees...

Long-time Verde partner Greenworks has received an award from Oregon Community Trees for its design work on Werbin Park.

Greenworks approached the Werbin Park project as a platform for teaching kids in the program about park design and the building process, providing a series of education opportunities for students in Hacienda CDC's Expresiones program, an after-school program for middle school students living in Hacienda CDC's affordable housing. Developed and implemented with Hacienda CDC staff and Verde's Nestor Campos, Greenworks' program consisted of six weeks of activities, including a site visit to Werbin Park and other similar parks. 

Please join us in congratulating Greenworks, Hacienda CDC and Nestor for their great work on the Werbin project. We'll give the last word to Oregon Community Trees: "Through this unique outreach effort, GreenWorks demonstrated their support for the Cully Neighborhood’s commitment to social equity and provided an amazing learning opportunity for local children, who will ultimately become the primary users of Werbin Park."
