Penn State and the Urban Side of Green
Faculty, staff and Extension Educators work far beyond the academic boundaries of the campus to help people across Pennsylvania. The work done by researchers filters on to individuals and communities to build better living. Penn State Outreach recently produced a series titled The Urban Side of Green. Part three appears above and describes how agricultural science can help rebuild communities.

I grew up outside of Pittsburgh and remember what the communities were like before the decline of heavy industry. It's heartening to think that some of that lost spirit can return through projects like these.
