Hanover Arts and Activities Center, in Ashland, will receive a 30 in Thirty Green Grant award of $1000 for its Beautification project.
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.
Hanover Arts and Activities Center is a public nonprofit community arts, education, and activities center. The Center’s plan is to better utilize the green space in front of their building to encourage the surrounding community to enjoy it. They will create a garden with four separate beds, three with native Virginia plants. The final bed will be a space for community members to plant flowers in memory of a loved one. The garden will include a wheelchair-accessible path and bench to encourage the community to pause and enjoy the beauty of their surroundings. Funds received from us will be used to purchase plants and material for the garden.
