A circular economy would let us use, collect, sort, and recycle or repurpose everyday materials on a large scale, replacing the world of single-use items, from food containers to this season’s fashions to demolished buildings. A new nonprofit organization is tackling this "big, hairy, audacious goal."
The organization's first project is reimagining the 115,000-square-foot former Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg into a mixed-use development featuring housing, retail, community services, and urban agriculture.
Indigenous communities are an important part of Pennsylvania’s past and present. This longstanding organization is a perfect example of how this culture and its people have endured, adapted, and come together. In addition to educational and social-service programming, the organization hosts a yearly Pow Wow that draws thousands of people of all backgrounds.
The September 11th National Memorial Trail, which runs through 23 Pennsylvania counties, is close to earning National Historic Landmark designation. That honor will help increase opportunities for education, recreation, and commemoration along the route.
Where once they made steel, the forces behind this massive mixed-use project hope to foster innovation and collaboration, building out public spaces, bike lanes, transit, apartments, cutting-edge offices, retail, and waterfront recreation trails. In this episode, we've got an update on Hazelwood Green.
