Land Lab

About the Land Lab Conference Series

Land Lab is a day of customized workshops and activities that provide community members with the resources, tools, and expertise necessary to take meaningful action in eliminating blight and vacancy in their neighborhoods. Depending on the community, Land Lab can take many forms. It is designed to help residents learn what steps they can take to get started creating the change they want to see in their community.
