2013 was a very successful year for gregg’s gardens. Our strategic partnership with Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership was expanded to include the Trumbull 100, a locally-focused group of philanthropists and community leaders. The Trumbull 100 joined the effort to revitalize Warren’s central city neighborhoods, and to help create the Garden District.
We raised more than $40,000 last year, including $10,000 in the Tom’s of Maine “50 States for Good” challenge, in which we mobilized our many supporters and captured the #1 position in the entire U.S. on Tom’s Facebook voting site.
We created more than 30 new wildflower gardens, built seven stone wall-planters made from material reclaimed from the foundations of demolished houses, put in a nice stone bench at the Atlantic and Elm garden, commissioned a beautiful outdoor mural (above) on an abandoned building on Vine Street near Porter, created an “info-porch” (below) at the corner of Belmont and Mercer and gave it the most gorgeous paint job in all of Warren.
Wait until you see what we do in 2014!
