Green Team 

Imagine being able to walk or bike from downtown Memphis to Collierville without ever crossing a street. The planned Wolf River Greenway would allow people to do just that. Lord knows, Memphians could use the exercise.

Another project, the Greater Memphis Greenline, would connect Cordova to Midtown along the abandoned CSX railway. Plans are also under way for more recreational opportunities at Shelby Farms.

The visionaries behind these projects are coming together Thursday, February 8th, at 5 p.m. to move them from the planning stages to the doing stages. The Greening Greater Memphis meeting at the Memphis Botanic Garden will feature speaker Alex Garvin, the consultant from New York hired to establish a future for Shelby Farms, and host Carol Coletta of radio's Smart City.

Local environmentalists are calling it "the birth of a movement," encouraging citizens to hop aboard in support of connecting city parks to city people.
