MMSD Honors Walnut Way with Green Luminary Award

Walnut Way uses green infrastructure projects to continue our vision of an environmentally sustainable community with an emphasis on environmental and economic justice. We are honored to be recognized by Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) with the Green Luminary Award, for our unique work connecting workforce development and green infrastructure. We demonstrate projects in clean energy and green infrastructure, train and employ community residents through our Blue Skies Landscaping Program in the installation and maintenance, spark neighbor-to-neighbor conversations and educational opportunities on the importance of the projects, and knit the new developments with existing green assets to form a cohesive sustainability pathway that is based on neighborhood strengths and interests.
