About This Project
  • Our 28x28 Initiative

    Norwood is just one school included in 28×28, a TPL lead initiative to leverage the funding and influence coming to Los Angeles for the 2028 Olympics, to bring new and critical green spaces to schools across the county.

    The Norwood Elementary Greening Project emerged from the collaborative efforts of the Link Initiative, which played a pivotal role in identifying community priorities and fostering meaningful engagement.

    The Link Advocates, Governments, Families, and Parks initiative (Link) aims to build healthier communities for children and families by engaging residents, advocates, and government partners in a community-driven planning process that secures local infrastructure funding.
