Community Outreach

by Eva Mannaberg

Our Community Outreach Program for 2016 has granted scholarships to 4 children to attend Warren Park Day camp. In 2015, 2 children received the scholarship and in 2014, one child was granted the scholarship.
Three local schools, Armstrong, Boone and Waters, have received $300.00 each in order to further their school gardening projects. Armstrong will build a conifer garden, Boone will grow vegetables in raised beds and Waters will use the grant to continue its Sustainable Garden Project.
