Greener Tomorrow

GARDENS AND TREES FOR ‘A GREENER TOMORROW’ IN INDIANA’S RIPLEY COUNTY!
Ripley Youth Outreach, a philanthropic initiative of the Ripley County Community Foundation, received an Enbridge Grant in the amount of $10,200 to support a new project called, Pollinator Gardens and Trees for a Greener Tomorrow.  The project will bring together students, community volunteers, and local business partners to install pollinator gardens and plant trees around Ripley County. To learn more visit: www.enbridge.com/stories/2021/april/ripley-county-indiana-pollinator-plots-for-a-greener-tomorrow.

A portion of the $10,200 will provide approximately three hundred indigenous trees native to Ripley County, such as White Pine, Redbud, Maple, Pear, and Apple.  The remaining funding will be used to install three to four pollinator gardens, which will include butterfly bushes, milkweed, and flowering native trees.

Ripley Youth Outreach is still raising funds for A Greener Tomorrow, trees will be planted in honor or memory of a loved one for $25.00 each.  The proceeds raised will be used to create an endowment (permanent) fund which will support local environmental projects in Ripley County now and forever. To support a Greener Tomorrow, you can donate into the endowed fund at www.rccfonline.org/donations/a-greener-tomorrow/.
