Muara Angke is a delta in North Jakarta surrounded by Teluk Jakarta in the north, Asin River in the east, and Adem River in the west. It was built on July,1977 by government of DKI Jakarta to accommodate the fisheries located in North Jakarta. There are some blocks of housing for fishermen where building coverage ratio of the houses was initially 35-53%, now it has become 100%. The changes are due to the residents elevated their houses to avoid flooding and expanded them to add rooms as needed. The impact caused the houses no longer have a yard in front of the house for planting trees, so there aren’t shade trees on the roadside, and the result the ambient temperature is quite hot in Muara Angke. This research was conducted with qualitative method to collect data through observation on the methods used by residents to green house, and interviews with community leaders about efforts to raise awareness on the importance of green space in the settlement. The results of this study shows that educational activities in the community have constraints such as the absence of experts to educate the residents, the plant is difficult to grow because several times flooded, income is limited, the supply of water for watering plants is limited, the road is very narrow making it difficult to plant trees. Some residents who have awareness of the importance of plants, they have planted trees in pots on the roadside, on the fence and above the trench
