Time Period: 2007-present
Since 2007, VAN LEUVEN Communications has supported Gateway Greening, a non-profit organization in St. Louis, Mo. celebrating community food projects, education and wellness programs and civic greening. Gateway Greening has become the go-to resource and recognized expert within the realm of community greening and urban farming. Urban Roots is an urban beatification project that Gateway Greening completes year after year. In 2011, VLC worked to gain coverage and media attention for this project and it was featured on KFCK, the local TV station. VLC also created a byline article about the project and secured its publication in the Missouri Municipal League.
