Christina Smith Selected as Honorary Member of ASLA
The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) has selected 5 individuals to be recognized with honorary membership in 2021 including Christina Smith of Groundwork Bridgeport. The chapter prepared the nomination and supporting materials for this honor.
Christina is president and CEO of Groundwork Bridgeport, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating the next generation of ecologically minded landscape architects by teaching high school students about sustainability, horticulture, and environmental stewardship. The City of Bridgeport, CT, serves as the students’ laboratory, where they transform blighted blocks into playgrounds, parks, and gardens and are often mentored by local professional landscape architects.
Groundwork Bridgeport and the chapter recently hosted a joint webinar which is available to view here.
