When we host our annual workshops, we never know who’s going to come through the FYI program! Erica Johnson completed her FYI project in April 2019 and blogged about the process from workshop to completing construction.
We wanted to share her insights and story with you and anyone who might be considering the Front Yard Initiative program.
