"This ioby project was a good case study identifying and addressing problems as a group. I learned that if you have a good idea and share it with other people, they will support you. And if you give them the opportunity, they will help. Memphis is one of the most unusual places I've lived, in that there's an expectation that people will take care of what's around them."

- Robyn Mace, ioby leader, Evergreen Rain Garden
