AES Indiana Project GreenSpace
What is AES Indiana Project GreenSpace?
AES Indiana Project GreenSpace is a publicly available grant program, where the grant award takes the form of a community park or space. Selected applicants work with KIB and alongside landscape architects to create a design that captures the sense of spirit and pride of their local neighborhood. The designs are then implemented through the labor of volunteer workdays, hired contractors, and KIB staff, brining to life a beautiful and vibrant public space. Projects receive maintenance support through KIB's GreenSpace Sustainability Program in the form of technical, financial, and boots-on-the ground support to ensure these places retain their function and beauty.
