Earlier this spring, I applied for the Alliance Pipeline Community Investment grant for the North Fayette “Growing Green Kids” Greenhouse Project. I applied for $7,500 to pay for the actual greenhouse structure. Today I was notified that not only did we receive the grant, Alliance wants to provide us with extra funds! They loved the idea of the project and they really want to support us!
Because Dick Jensen, a community member from Elgin, Iowa, purchased the structure before we received any grants, we were able to set the greenhouse up this past month. We will use the Alliance Pipeline grant and the Fayette County Community Foundation grant to reimburse Dick for the structure, labor and supplies cost.
A huge thank you goes out to Alliance! I’ll blog more about the greenhouse soon!
