The Eighth Annual Growing In Place Symposium: Green Neighborhood Assets: Streets, Houses, Schools, Parks, Food.
Growing In Place 2015

March 5, 2015 at the Marbles Kids Museum, Raleigh, NC

Families with children not wanting to move to low-density suburbs need neighborhoods and an urban public realm designed to support culturally diverse, socially stimulating, healthy lifestyles.

Growing IN Place addresses planning and design policies that support these needs for children and other family members. Young people need networks of attractive, walkable/bikable routes connecting homes to schools, parks, community gardens, and cultural institutions – where they can engage with nature.

Registration Deadline: February 27
