Phoenix grant transforms contaminated properties
Aug. 3, 2017
The city of Phoenix received a grant to clean up contaminated properties called Brownfields. One property cleaned up has gone from a Brownfield to a Healthfield, with a food hub, demonstration farm, farm stand and agricultural training facility for veterans and developmentally disabled adults now located on the land. Rosanna Albright, program manager of the Phoenix Brownfields Program, and Paris Masek, president of Green on Purpose, an organization that distributes fresh, locally produced food, will tell us more about the project.
