This manual, funded by a grant to ECSM from the United States Department of Labor ETA, was a collaboration with Baltimore’s Safe and Sound Campaign and based on a previous publication from the Institute for Local Self-Reliance. It is a training manual intended for deconstruction crews. Dennis Livingston, Community Resources; and Lowell Larseon, Greater Greenmount Community Association; worked with local contributors to research, update, and write this adaptation.
