Summer in Atlanta means Verde! Hosted by Generation Green of the Georgia Conservancy, Verde! is the soiree of the season!
The Generation Green Board of the Georgia Conservancy is excited to honor Katherine Kennedy of Concrete Jungle as its 10th annual Longleaf Award winner at this year's VERDE! The Longleaf Award recognizes the outstanding work of an emerging environmental or sustainability leader in metro Atlanta.
Katherine Kennedy's commitment to providing healthy, fresh produce to food insecure Atlantans through nature-based initiatives and the sustainable, community-oriented use of Atlanta's fruit-bearing trees and arable land is representative of the true spirit of the Longleaf Award.
Katherine Kennedy and the work of Concrete Jungle will be celebrated at Generation Green’s annual summer soiree, VERDE!, on June 15 at the Trolley Barn in Atlanta’s Inman Park neighborhood.
