Clement Waters Retreat is restoring the understory layer of an urban forest on a vacant 4-acre lot on the south end of Swope Park. Why is that important? The Southeast KC area experiences high crime and food scarcity. Immersive nature experiences and fresh grown foods both help people avoid the long-term medical problems associated with low incomes
