Real estate investment firm KPG Funds today announced a sponsorship and partnership with Earth Celebrations’ Ecological City: Art & Climate Solutions Workshops. This extensive workshop series, offered free of cost, from February 29 - May 6 engages residents, youth and local groups to collaborate with our artists-in-residence creating visual art, giant puppets and costumes exploring local sites and their climate solution initiatives, from community garden bio-swales that filter pollution runoff, water harvesting ponds and solar micro grids, to green roofs and rooftop bee farms, along with a community vision plan for climate resiliency on the waterfront.
