[FERNDALE] – Anyone interested in creating or expanding a community beautification project can call Sullivan Renaissance Horticulture Coordinator, Diana K. Weiner, to discuss ideas and explore locations. Applications will be released in January 2017, but preliminary planning and a site visit can begin now, before the site is blanketed with snow.
Interested groups who would like to participate in the 2017 grant program and competition will have the opportunity to meet with and learn from professionals on location. Diana can help you decide which plants would be best and share tips and tricks on how to develop a garden design; Volunteer Coordinator Cara Kowalski can assist with developing volunteer and community support. Multicultural outreach and Spanish translation are available through Ari Mir-Pontier who can also help with ideas to include more of the community in projects and events.
“Whether your community or organization has been involved in beautification for years; or has never participated, a site visit would be an excellent way to move forward,” said Diana. “Examples of previously funded projects include signage, gardens, parks and streetscape enhancements.”
To set up a site visit, call Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445. To learn more about the Sullivan Renaissance grant program, visit www.sullivanrenaissance.org. You can also follow Sullivan Renaissance on Facebook and Twitter.
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.
