A Diverse Fair Haven Community with Historic Homes and a Beautiful Waterfront
People living around Chatham Square have been planting trees, cleaning up the park, removing dangerous lead from the soils in front yards - among countless other activities!! - with the Urban Resources Initiative (URI) since 1995, the year URI started. This is an impressive legacy.
We want to continue the work this year.
I'm Ross Bernet. A recent graduate from the Yale School of Forestry. I'm doing an internship with URI Greenspace this summer. I'm looking forward to working with people living in Fair Haven to help beautify, restore, and engage the community around Chatham Square.
Greenspace provides material support (plants!!) and technical advice to help achieve the goals of the community where we work. Each year is different. Each community is different. But by improving the quality of our urban environment we improve the quality of the lives of the people living there.
I presented a brief intro to Greenspace at the May CSNA community meeting on May 20th and was very happy to be included and see all the fabulous work ya'll are up to.
The next step to get involved with Greenspace is to get in touch with me if you think you could benefit from the resources we provide.
I look forward to hearing from you:
