Piedmont Park, Atlanta, GA
In mid-April, the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR), an Ei Strategic Ally, traveled to Atlanta to develop best management practices for community composting via an EPA Region 4 grant.
Ei orchestrated two meetings with Piedmont Park Conservancy (PPC). On Mon April 23, PPC Board Member Ken Haldin hosted Brenda Platt & Linda Bilsens with the ILSR for a park tour along with an education on park history including recent enhancements and future plans. The following day park staff educated on past and current composting practices at the community garden. Ei Advisor G. Boyd Leake of Community Environmental Management joined the meetings and shared his expertise.
The Ei FB album, Ei Connects, includes a pictorial recap of the introductory tours.
