Walnut Way Conservation Corp. and over 19 partners gathered Thursday morning at the Fondy Farmers Market at 2220 W. Fond du Lac Ave. Thursday morning to celebrate the completion of a number of green infrastructure projects in the surrounding Lindsay Heights.
“This was a huge project that we all came together for,” said Walnut Way director Antonio Butts
The projects, which include four solar arrays, multiple bioswales and a host of other environmentally-sustainable improvements, are part of an effort to brand the neighborhood as an environmentally-friendly place and draw eco-tourism. It’s also about jobs and economic development said Butts.
