Audubon At Home Grant
We are excited to announce that Crossroads has been awarded a grant from the Audubon at Home Plants for Birds Burke Grant program! Crossroads is one of six faith communities in Northern Virginia to be awarded $1,250 for native plants to create demonstration garden. The goal of the Burke Grant program is to support network Plants for Birds activities that will increase visibility, reach and impact of Audubon's Plants for Birds programming across the country.
Over the coming months Crossroads will be converting the existing beds in front of Entrance 1 into native plant beds. These native plant gardens will be used to educate everyone who visits Crossroads on the importance of native plant gardens throughout our communities. Jesus taught us to be good stewards of the whole Earth and Crossroads is committed to showing the way!
Lots of help will be needed in preparing the beds and planting the new plants. This is a wonderful way for new and existing gardening enthusiasts to get involved in a great project. Our initial work dates are September 10th from 5:00 - 8:00 pm and September 13th from 9:30 am - 4:00 pm. If you are interested please register here! If you have any questions, please contact Kathy MacKrell.
