What is the MEDIANGREEN mission?

Median Green Video In the spring of 2010 producer Tony Paniagua from public television KUAT produced a short documentary about MedianGreen. It aired on the Arizona Illustrated program and is reproduced here for you to enjoy.

Our mission is to replant and beautify the public medians in Green Valley. Over the years, due to age, drought and neglect, our Pima County-owned medians have become barren and unsightly. The County’s budget allows for general maintenance, but not for replacement or enhancement. We believe that Green Valley residents deserve a community that looks attractive and reflects the pride we feel about our hometown.

MedianGreen is a non-profit 501(c) 3 corporation and is an all-volunteer effort. In 2015 MedianGreen merged with the Green Valley Council Foundation, another 501(c)3 organization and is now a project of the Foundation. This merger will help ensure the longevity of MedianGreen and will make more of MedianGreen’s assets available for replanting the medians. Under a license agreement with Pima County, MedianGreen has been granted the authority to do this replanting. There are 110 medians on the 14 miles of public roadways that we plan to address in the future.

How is MEDIANGREEN funded?

MedianGreen is a non-profit, 501(c) 3 corporation meaning that your donations are tax deductible. Our funding comes from individual donations, grants, special events and sponsorships. We have a special program, Sponsor-A-Median, that allows organizations, businesses and individuals to pay the costs of replanting a median.

Grants have been received from the Green Valley Community Coordinating Council (GVCCC), the Freeport-McMoRan Copper and Gold Foundation, Green Valley/Sahaurita Comunity Investment Fund, the White Elephant Foundation, the Dr. Scholl Foundation, the Union Pacific Railroad, and Wal-Mart.
