On December 2nd, 2015, panelists served up plenty of greenspace insight to approximately 40 park advocates gathered at the Georgia Conservancy’s quarterly Green Eggs & Ham program. Ayanna Williams, Park Pride’s Director of Community Building, was among the panelists, all of whom are involved in creating more and better greenspaces in Atlanta.

“To successfully make changes in your park, it’s more effective to focus on what you do want to accomplish rather than what you don’t want to see in your park.”
~ Ayanna Williams, Director of Community Building

Sally Sears from the South Fork Conservancy, Na’Taki Osborne Jelks from the West Atlanta Watershed Alliance, and Commissioner Amy Phuong of the City of Atlanta’s Department of Parks and Recreation, also participated on the panel.
