July 2016 Grant Recipients Announced

In July 2016 HPS evaluated ten worthy grant submissions from six Mid-Atlantic states and selected three winners:

Patapsco Valley State Park, Ellicott City, MD, were awarded $500 to establish a pollinator garden to attract bees, butterflies, moths, hummingbirds, and ladybugs, and to help educate the 800,000 annual park visitors about the importance of pollinators to the environment. 

Centreville Elementary School (CES), Centreville, VA, received $500 for outdoor gardens that will be planted and maintained by the students. Each grade level will be assigned a garden space, including raised beds, a greenhouse, a native garden, a butterfly garden, and more. This project will also help the homeless and many families at CES by providing organic produce to help supplement their needs. 

New Voices Middle School, Brooklyn, NY, were awarded a $500 grant to continue their greening work, specifically the care for twenty trees on the block where the school resides, and the expansion of the recently planted butterfly/pollinator garden in the school courtyard. The school's Green Team along with school employees and community members will participate in annual greening events and provide ongoing care of the planting beds.
