Community Impact Project

Thank you to everyone who came out on June 10th, rolled up their sleeves, and helped with site preparation - planting native shade trees, shrubs, a cane fruit orchard, perennial border plants, and installing a pervious parking area. View photos below!  

Frankford Gateway Project Volunteer Day

The DVGBC Community Impact Project is a volunteer-led initiative begun by Kristie Kozenewski as her DVGBC Ambassador project. The inspiration for the effort came from the Greenbuild 2013 Legacy project. Kristie and her co-chairs established a committee of DVGBC volunteers in 2016. They released a request for concepts and after careful consideration selected New Kensington CDC’s (NKCDC) Frankford Gateway initiative. The two organizations have come together in a collaborative partnership to integrate sustainable and environmental practices into a neighborhood in need of transformation. 

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our fundraising efforts, helping us reach our goal of $10,000!
