b'LAND + WATER WORKS AMBASSADORSJanlynn Miller, a long-time resident on Detroits east side, is one of 40 ambassadors trained through the Land + Water WORKS Coalition to teach their neighbors about GSI and help them install rain gardens and rain barrels. The ambassadors receive a performance-based stipend, extensive training, and competitive small grants to purchase special learning aids or materials. Green stormwater infrastructure requires community support to succeed, and research shows the benefit of peer learning. One on one relationships are the key to the Land + Water WORKS program. As Janlynn explains in the video (left), Providing the peer to peer conversation about being a good land and water steward is more beneficial than having someone just attend a training. They really appreciate hearing from folks that look like them, act like them, that live in their communities. Folks become a little more relaxed and we can convey the messages that mean the most to them.ENVIRONMENT'
