Keney Park Sustainability Project (KPSP) provides outreach and community collaborations to help the community become more self-sustainable and environmentally conscious, while preserving historic Keney Park.
During National Park and Recreation month, MetroHartford Alliance Content Manager Nan Price spoke with KPSP Founder/Executive Director Herb Virgo about how the organization has continued to serve the community, even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our overall mission is to reconnect people to the healing power of nature,” he emphasizes. “We really want to address an issue or need, come up with a sustainability plan, and be able to transition onto our next project. That’s our focus, to try to make Keney Park itself more self-sustainable so there isn’t a need for sustainability project in the park.”
