The only way to be successful with Plant the Parkways is through partnerships. Initially, the partners involved are Leadership Memphis, Volunteer Memphis, Memphis City Beautiful and the City of Memphis. Deep appreciation goes to the KRESGE Foundation for their funding.
Ritchie Smith and Associates Landscape Architects is conducting the design phase of Plant the Parkways and has involved the City of Memphis Tree Board, the City of Memphis Division of Parks, General Services Division, and Division of Engineering. All World Consulting produced the base maps. Now it is time to expand the number of partners to make Plant the Parkways happen. The list below is just a sample of those organizations we know exist.
