It’s coming in April-the 2012 Great American Cleanup!
The James River Association’s Extreme Stream Makeover was conducted the week of April 11, 2011 and targeted the Stoney Run watershed. The community-wide event focused on three sites, one of which was Denbigh High School (DHS). Thanks to the Beautification and Community Greening grant from Keep Virginia Beautiful, JRA was able to complete a unique project with DHS.
The purpose of the giveaway was to increase awareness about plastic bag litter and that the fact that re-usable bags were better for the environment.
The students were able to grow and share food with each other, family, friends and staff, thank you KVB!
