2014 Grant Winners
The New Leaf Market Co-op Community Grant Committee is proud to announce the winners of the New Leaf Market Co-op 2014 grants: Nancy Morgan, Board member of Friends of Maclay Gardens and Lowell Collins and Patrick Laseur from Hooked Aquaponics.
Nancy Morgan’s project, Enhancing the Lake Overstreet Trails, will repair the connector trail between the Ravine Loop and the Lake Overstreet Loop of the Lake Overstreet Trail system. Friends of Maclay and Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park will supplement the $1,000 New Leaf Market Co-op Community Grant.
The second $1,000 grant goes towards Lowell Collins’ and Patrick Laseur’s Aquaponics Community Outreach project. They plan on expanding their existing aquaponics system with additional grow beds and fish environments and are hoping to create a learning center to educate the community on the value of growing food using aquaponic systems.
The New Leaf Market Co-op Community Grants are awarded in memory of Matthew Tansey and Bryce Buchanan to promote local food production, a sustainable environment and healthy lifestyles.
