[In short,]
This report was developed out of a series of documents on urban vacant
land by one of the leading gorups in the country dealing with this
issue--the Pennsylvania Horticultural  Society, which also supported the
color printing in this report. 

Part 1 of the report addresses the   neighborhood resource; large-scale
greening systems; and the link between urban renewal and sprawl. 

Part 2 provides an in-depth look at some PHS programs, including the
rebirth of the New Kensington Philadelphia neighborhood and the Green
City  Strategy employed by the City of Philadelphia. An appendix
provides a list of contacts to the many Community Development
Corporations active in the area of urban greening  in cities throughout
the United States.
