On Tuesday's "Greater Somerville" on SCATV, host KyAnn Anderson talks with Lenni Armstrong and Dan Delongchamp about making Somerville a greener place, including efforts to "de-pave" the city.
According to Anderson and the guests, 77 percent of Somerville is covered with impervious surfaces, and Armstrong spoke about "improving the Somerville ecosystem one yard at a time" by getting rid of concrete and pavement.
Here's the episode description sent by "Greater Somerville:
"Join host KyAnn Anderson as she speaks with TEDx Somerville's Lenni Armstrong, a scientist, activist, and de-paving organizer, and Dan Delongchamp, a landscape architect, about the Somerville Climate Action's initiative to rid Somerville of its excessive concrete and pavement, in lieu of more permeable materials and green space. On tonight's episode we'll take an in-depth look into the depaving process, what landscaping options are available for your newly found urban garden, and the direct benefits that the removal of simply one concrete driveway can have on Somerville's ecosystem. As you begin to think green this spring, we know this episode is one you won't want to miss."
