39 Days Until LIFE: Knox Parks

March 19th, 2013 § 0 comments

As we count down to the April 27 performance of LIFE: A Journey Through Time, we will highlight our LIFE community sponsors, continuing today with Knox Parks:


Knox Parks (KNOX) was founded in 1966 when city councilwoman Betty Knox established a trust fund to help maintain and preserve Hartford’s green spaces. Since its founding, KNOX has been a key partner in improving the City of Hartford’s green infrastructure and is a nationally recognized leader in the field of community greening. KNOX’s principal services include creating and maintaining community gardens, neighborhood beautification and reforestation, park improvement efforts, development of greenways, and the management and maintenance of public green spaces. Each our programs support our mission: Using horticulture as a catalyst for community engagement, KNOX forges partnerships between residents, businesses, and government, providing leadership to build stronger, greener, healthier and more beautiful neighborhoods in Hartford.
