New Orleans is a city that floods. Even a small storm can leave streets impassable. City officials say they’re working on solutions, but they’re also asking citizens to help out. Listen to this WWNO story from July 13 featuring the Urban Conservancy’s Felice Lavergne talking about the Front Yard Initiative. Her interview starts at about 1:45. If you go to the link, you can also see a photo of some graduates of the UC’s and Launch NOLA’s Green Sector Academy implementing green infrastructure on a front yard in Central City.
