communities’ access to parks and gardens, while organizing to change local
policies to develop more equitable park and food systems for generations to

eight in our active development pipeline. We take pride in innovative and
challenging work which makes change a part of our regular work day life. You

a project’s costs, timeline, design, management of consultants and
contractors, compliance with public and private funding programs and
construction oversight. The PM typically works in close coordination with
LANLT team members, including the Community Organizing, Stewardship,
