Green Lents provides education, volunteer, and leadership opportunities in and around the Lents neighborhood to promote a thriving, livable community. Check out our 2021 impact report here.
We work to ensure that sustainability is accessible to everyone in our neighborhood. We do work to improve housing affordability, fight for clean air, restore pollinator habitat, ensure access to tools and gardening supplies, steward a community orchard, and engage Lents residents on other key livability issues.

Green Lents is committed to having a diverse representation of the Lents populations on our board, as well as engaging the skills & leadership of BIPOC, low-income persons, LGBTQIA+ people, youth, and people with disabilities.
