World Relief Seattle will build a robust environmental education community program that will provide hands-on, place-based environmental education for South King County schools and community members.
This environmental education program will feature the community-led conservation work happening at Paradise Parking Plots Community Garden — a community garden designed for and by the local refugee and immigrant community. The garden is the largest green stormwater infrastructure site in South King County, and impacts the Green-Duwamish watershed by cleaning and diverting more than a million gallons of stormwater each year.
The environmental education community program will provide local school, development professionals and other community groups opportunities to engage in hands-on learning at the garden that inspires conservation, promotes ecological integrity and develops connection to the local land.
