Green Infrastructure

 ... includes everything from rain gardens to food forests.  Benefits include:

* soaking up rainwater to reduce runoff, pollution, and floods
* attracting wildlife with native species
* supporting humans with edible landscaping
* promoting mental health with greenspace

While it takes government investment to do huge projects, anyone can do small things like planting a tree or a garden.  A modest group of citizens can buy an empty lot to make a community garden, rain garden, pocket park, and so on.
