The project manager will be supported by an advisory committee composed by GreenSpace Partners Program Director Corrie Zoll, Anna Wasescha of Farm in the City, and Vicky Vogels of the Minnesota State Horticultural Society's Minnesota Green program. These three individuals convene the Twin Cities Greening Coalition.
The Twin Cities Greening Coalition is an informal group of gardening and greening programs based in the Twin Cities. TCGC works to identify local greening issues that can be best addressed as a coalition.
