It’s not what you think: we’re not talking about growing and harvesting people. Virginia’s economy is driven by a number of factors. Tourism generated $26 billion in visitor spending in 2018.
Our mission is to engage and unite Virginians to improve our natural and scenic environment through our 5 impact areas: To honor that commitment to the Commonwealth, we funded 30 grant recipients – one each day in the month of June.
Soil Cycles is dedicated to composting and reducing food waste using human-powered bicycles for transportation.
With their funding, Clean Fairfax will purchase reusable produce bags to provide for shoppers instead of disposable produce bags.
Keep Virginia Cozy is going to use Green Grant funds to build and provide areas for those recyclables to be disposed of properly, rather than ending up in the landfill.
Dickenson County Chamber in the Town of Clintwood has been awarded a 30 in Thirty Green Grant of $1000 for its Community Beautification project.
The organization will use their grant to reduce the amount of litter found in this area by installing pet waste stations, trash cans, and recycling bins.
