In May 2022 MARC launched the Green Infrastructure Training Center to educate residents on Green Infrastructure installation and maintenance practices. Below is an introductory curriculum that outlines the basics of ecology, soil health, and native plant management. In addition to recorded modules, the curriculum includes additional resources and assessments to test your understanding of the concepts highlighted here. We invite you to move through the curriculum at your own pace and stay connected for more upcoming training opportunities.
This curriculum was developed in collaboration with Deep Roots KC and funded by a 2020 Health Forward Foundation Healthy Communities Grant.
