Our Mission

Greening The Bend seeks to bolster a renaissance in South Bend by promoting green spaces and human-friendly urban features that protect water and our River as a precious natural resource.  This will result in social, economic, and environmental benefits for the South Bend area.  Our kick-off event was a great succes and we anticipate continued support at this year's Rain Barrel Ball.  At this year's Ball, we will be premiered a waltz composed especially for Greening the Bend as homage to the river.  You can also check out our "Water Changes Everything" video premiered at the 2014 Rain Barrel Ball.
