From youth organizing to planting trees: Boston's environment chief's new rolePlay
Reverend Mariama White-Hammond, Boston's chief of environment, energy, and open space, joins us to talk about her priorities for the city, and how she's bringing her background as a pastor to battling climate change.
One of those priorities is increasing Boston's tree canopy. Earlier this month, the city announced a program to plant and maintain more trees on private land. If private land owners or organizations are interested in participating, the city is asking them to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
