Interested in learning from leaders and thinkers who have transformed vacant places into vibrant green spaces?

Hear from experts Sandra Albro, author of "Vacant to Vibrant: Creating Successful Green Infrastructure Networks," (Island Press, 2019) and project leaders who work with ioby (in our backyards) about how to turn ideas for transforming vacant lots into reality.
