[FERNDALE] –The Sullivan Renaissance Maintenance Support Program provides financial, organizational, volunteer and horticultural assistance to established groups for the continued care of past Sullivan Renaissance beautification projects.
Groups may apply for up to $1,500 in grant funds and up to $250 in Flower Dollars redeemable at local garden centers for the planting of annual flowers. In addition, requests may be made for up to $250 in matching funds toward the purchase of spring flowering bulbs that can be planted in the fall. Additional funding for capital improvements is available and is designed to make ongoing maintenance activities easier. Maintenance groups can also request a Project Assistant (formerly called Intern) as well as assistance for Sullivan Renaissance Horticulture Crew.
“Sullivan Renaissance recognizes the hard work and dedication needed to maintain public gardens over the years,” said Horticulture Program Manager Diana K. Weiner. Each group receives a site visit from Diana, to assess long-term maintenance needs and sustainability. Volunteer Program Manager Cara Kowalski also works with communities to build volunteer capacity, plan educational and outreach events. Cara also arranges for assistance from the Sullivan Renaissance Volunteer Corps.
The deadline to submit an application is Wednesday, March 1, which is earlier than the due date for Garden and Community beautification grants.
