This April, Loralyn had three main projects that stood out from the rest: TreeVitalize, the Borland Sustainable Urban Garden project, and the Green Roof for Bus Shelter project. With TreeVitalize, Loralyn conducted outreach to property owners in a particular section of East Liberty to gain signatures for new street trees. After the outreach process, she wrote the TreeVitalize grant application and submitted it to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy along with the signed forms. East Liberty Development, Inc. will hear this fall if the grant is awarded. Also with TreeVitalize, Loralyn planned and hosted a volunteer-based street/park tree planting event in another section of East Liberty where TreeVitalize trees had been awarded from a grant submitted by her last year. Loralyn continued to move the Green Roof for Bus Shelter project forward alongside her partners and colleague. With a bus shelter donated from the Port Authority, the Team is now moving in fast forward to work out logistics to start retrofitting the shelter for the future green roof! Local developers/partners, the Mosites Company, are currently designing green roofs for their new bus shelters outside Target, due to the ELDI Team engaging them in this project. So before ELDI's pilot demo has even been installed, other partners will be installing green roof bus shelters in East Liberty! Lastly, Loralyn heavily worked on the Borland Sustainable Urban Garden project design alongside Pashek Associates, a local landscape architecture firm. This month, Loralyn and Sara Thompson, RLA, worked on the site analysis and several conceptual schematic designs to present to the Borland Co-housing group.
