The Eaton Conservation District and the Greening Mid‐Michigan team is pleased to provide a new DVD: Greening Mid‐Michigan: A Vision for Green Infrastructure! This 28–minute DVD highlights green infrastructure success stories‐ from the reuse of industrial sites into successful county parks‐ to our local farms and markets, watershed protection efforts, and finally, how we are promoting
active living for our residents through the promotion of our river, park and trail systems.
The video is available on www.youtube.com/user/GreeningMidMichigan On the GMM Youtube site, you can watch all four segments of the video related to agriculture, active lifestyles, stormwater protection and parks
developed from brownfields.
GMM hopes that with this video you will better understand and embrace sustainable “green infrastructure” efforts that are currently underway in Clinton, Eaton and Ingham Counties. We also hope that this video will inspire everyone to create new “green”success stories in the years to come.
The Eaton Conservation District and the Country Mill (MAEAP verified orchard) are featured prominently in the section “Mid-Michigan Farms & Markets: Healthy and Local”.
