YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Youngstown celebrated Earth Day with Operation Pollination, a new initiative by the Youngstown Rotary and Mahoning County Land Bank.

The aim is to plant seeds and grow wildflowers on several lots in all four corners of the city.

The first location was unveiled Thursday at the intersection of Ohio and Lauderdale avenues on the city’s north side.

“It will create healthier environments, affect food production, the air we breathe, the quality of life in any situation,” said Debora Flora of the Mahoning County Land Bank.

This is one of six projects the Landbank is planning this spring.

These new green spaces will soon support a positive health outcome for the neighbors – people, birds, bees and butterflies!
