Inspired by the PBS film series "Edens Lost & Found," this national

community-based participation. Sessions will focus on how integrated
management of natural resources, including water, air, land and

environmental revitalization of cities.

in urban planning, redevelopment, design, horticulture, public
health, advocacy and municipal administration as well as students,
academics, activists, greening leaders and civic leaders.
