Sacred Heart Center gets Green Grant for Garden

Sacred Heart Center in Richmond has been awarded a 30 in Thirty Green Grant of $1000 for its Community Beautification project.

The Center (SHC) connects Latino families with tools to thrive and flourish.

Grant funds will be used to for their community garden, where adults and children learn about gardening, sustainable practices and food production. SHC will purchase garden tools, plants, seeds, and a compost system. As the garden is harvested, the food is offered free of charge to the community that attends programs at Sacred Heart Center, as well as to the food bank located on the premises.

Since 2011, we have provided $203,000 for 260 different environmental projects and programs all across the Commonwealth, due to the generosity this year of our partner Altria, as well as additional support from Keep America Beautiful and Coca-Cola.
