Planting for Peace moves the Nuestro Barrio Community towards achieving their goal of 50% tree canopy coverage in the neighborhood within the next 5-7 years. Trees will be planted in such a way as to passively cool homes and shade sidewalks. Whenever possible, they will also be planted where they can harvest water either from houses or runoff from the street.

Other elements of the Nuestro Barrio project include community wide:
--waste management including increased recycling, green waste composting and creative reuse of waste products
--public edibles spaces including gardens, orchards and native edibles
--community rain and greywater harvesting including daylighting existing canals
--rehabilitation of neighborhood architecture including original adobe structures
--energy audits, passive solar projects and small-scale solar projects
--creating green jobs by working with local businesses and educational facilities
--leadership building
--public art installations
