How Green is Your City?
Wilmington Rotary and the city plant seeds of change.
A greener city could mean a safer city, thanks to a partnership between The Rotary Club of Wilmington and the Delaware Center for Horticulture.
The goal of the partnership, called Growing Neighborhoods, is to plant trees and flowers in Wilmington’s depressed neighborhoods and parks. Research shows that public green spaces can reduce crime and revitalize neighborhoods. “This project epitomizes our motto: service before self,” says project selection committee chair Roger Kirtley.
The group also will help fund a study of the economic value of Wilmington’s parks. Data should illustrate the benefits of urban parks. It also should inspire decision-makers and residents to advocate for more funding.
“This is about plants and people, not lights and sidewalks,” says horticulture center executive director and Rotary member Pam Sapko. “There has been real civic engagement as a result.”
