Community, non-profits, industry, and government are partnering together to take action on community and health priorities through an innovative green solution located on the border between industry and residential areas in Georgetown, Seattle, WA.
Just Health Action (JHA) and DRCC/TAG are partnering to install a 136-foot long and 12-foot high free standing vegetated trellis system called a green wall along the outside of CDL Recycle (7201 E. Marginal Way S.) to reduce the impact of fugitive dust and pollutants on neighboring residential area of Georgetown. Â Over the course of the next month, work on the site will include depaving, soil preparation, irrigation installation, and erection of the wall itself, all with theÂ Urban System Designsâ€™ DIRT Corps, DRCC/TAGâ€™s Duwamish Valley Youth Corps, and CDL Recycle. Â The construction will culminate in a community planting day on October 22, 2016.
