HPIC Nominated for Sustainability Leadership Award

January 22nd, 2015 Comments off

We are honored to have been nominated for an award from Sustainable Seattle for Transforming Spaces.

With the help of Rainwise, Sustainable Seattle, King County Green Grants, DePave, and a lot of community volunteers, this community hub in Southwest Seattle transformed an asphalt parking lot into a permeable courtyard surrounded by plantings. The transformation also includes a 120′ long community blueberry and huckleberry hedge, a cistern, and two raingardens, with a community designed and created mosaic bench telling the story of stormwater in the works.
