New grant given to Community Hoop House Project from CD funds
Congradulations to the recipients of our new grant given from funds from the proceeds of the Still Moving Mountains CDs. The Community Hoop House Project (CHHP) is part of SAMS’s Sustainable Communities Program. This project was developed to support the SAMS mission to “improve quality of life… and to help rebuild sustainable communities" in our region. The goals of the CHHP are:
- To grow healthy, organic produce that will supply low-income residents of the Town of Appalachia and surrounding coal camp communities with fresh food via the Appalachia Food Bank
- To demonstrate and teach sustainable gardening through workshops, community events, and volunteer opportunities.
- To build a strong community network of local activists working to promote healthy lifestyles, home grown food, and sustainable community development.
Thank you all for your hard work selling these CDs. Keep it up! This is a way to keep providing small grants to our movement.
