I'd like to take part in a planting or community beautification project. How can I get involved?

The RapidRealty Green Team is always looking for an extra pair of hands, and we're always looking for new projects, too! Some of our previous outings have included planting gardens to improve city blocks, cleaning up public parks, and taking part in the coastal reforestation effort to protect the Rockaways from the kind of damage suffered during Hurricane Sandy.

Whether you're an individual looking to get involved or a business or other group interested in teaming up to tackle a green project, send an email to RapidGreen@RapidNYC.com to learn about upcoming opportunities.
