Jill, Twany, Maxine, Tim – North Omaha Transplant Garden

Date grant awarded: October 8, 2019

The North Omaha Transplant Garden is located in the middle of Omaha’s inner city. Individuals gather unwanted plant divisions, grow them to full-sized plants, then transplant them in yards within the inner city limits. Studies have shown landscaping can reduce crime by 7-20%. Not only does it beautify neighborhoods, however it offers people a reason to walk outside. Walk in a space where they get to know each other.

It helps transform a block into a neighborhood.
