About Stephen Causby
Causby led the grassroots transformation of an overgrown lot in Atlanta. The lot now boasts picnic areas, garden beds, a mural, a playground, newly sodded play fields and a brand-new community center. He led every phase of the development, managing cleanups, executing programming, grant writing and soliciting community support. By engaging residents to participate in the park’s improvement, he developed a team of neighborhood leaders who help with maintenance and programming. His nonprofit of choice is Park Pride.
