Sustainability Commission Awarded $5,000 Grant

July, 25, 2019

The Village is excited to announce that the Sustainability Commission was recently awarded a $5,000 grant from the ComEd Green Region Program to help fund the third season of Parkways for Pollinators. In collaboration with Deep Roots Project, Parkways for Pollinators is a hands-on garden planting activity that is available to residents through hosting green block parties. Transforming parkways into native plant oases can help mitigate flooding by using deep root natives, and provides a habitat for butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators. This program adds many new native gardens, brings neighbors together in fun planting activities, and educates residents about the benefits of natural garden and lawn care.
