Home Greening Instills Sense of Pride, Community in Cobbs Creek Neighborhood

Last week, the GreenTreks team was on hand at the Cobbs Creek Environmental Education Center for the first screening of our latest video, Green Homes. It was a special treat to reconnect with participants in the Darby Cobbs Watershed Partnership/Philadelphia Water Department supported project almost a year after we initially filmed.

True to the stormwater management theme, the weather was wet and dreary, but attendees spirits were not to be dampened. They loved the film — and to a person, they agreed that they’d participate in the project again if given the chance. In fact, when asked if they’d be so enthusiastic if asked to share in project costs (they were fortunate enough to be the pilot community, so the project was fully funded), the answer was a resounding YES!

Here’s the video that will have others scrambling to bring the Green Homes initiative to their own neighborhoods:
