2018 Keep America Beautiful – Lowe’s Community Partner Grant

Keep America Beautiful Link to KAB website requested project submissions back in April.  They were offering $5,000, $10,000 and $20,000 grants.  We worked on our proposal through May and June and there was never a doubt we were going for the $20K!  We wanted a plan that would benefit our local Lowe’s Store and allow them to volunteer with us.  So building something was important.  Thank you Lowe’s Midtown our benefactor and partner!  Link

Bin There, Do That: Earth Friendly Choices for Recycling Green Waste is all about recycling things we don’t even think about – all of our raked leaves, lawn clippings and trimmings, kitchen scraps like fruit and vegetable peels, and even coffee grounds, paper filters, and shredded cardboard.

Working with our partners Mobile Urban Growers Link to MUG Website we identified community gardens that would love to compost and put back good soil into the gardens.

  • Trinity Episcopal Church 1900 Dauphin St
  • Dauphin Way United Methodist Church 1550 Dauphin St
  • Central Presbyterian Church 1260 Dauphin St
  • The Lost Garden 265 Dauphin St
  • DeTonti Square 311 N. Conception St
  • Government St United Methodist (Bee Hive) Marine St
  • Mobile Medical Museum  1664 Springhill Ave
  • Strickland Youth Center 2315 Costarides St

We also reached out to others and will have bins at the following locations:

  • Eichold-Mertz School 2815 Government
  • Kate Shepard School 3980-B Burma Rd
  • Feeding the Gulf Coast 5248 Mobile St Theodore
  • Victory Learning Gardens 261 Rickarby St

Our Garden Managers will be collecting data regarding the waste added to the bins and the compost removed as well as total hours delivering waste to the sites, taking temperature readings and the amount of compost created.

We hope to show how much waste can be kept out of the landfill and put back into our soil during the period Sept to the end of Nov.
