Texas Nature Project Receives Grant Renewal from H-E-B
Wednesday, February 17, 2010 • Posted February 17, 2010

Texas Nature Project recently got news that they had received renewal of an $1,800.00 grant from H-E-B. This is our second year receiving support for our Sustainable Leadership Workshops from H-E-B Environmental Affairs.

Susan Ghertner was so impressed with our energetic volunteers and the outreach programming at the Fredericksburg Renewable Energy Roundup in the Fall of 2008, that she invited us to apply for a grant for the spring of 2009. We were awarded $900.00 to support the spring 2009 schedule of eight workshops. In the fall of 2009, we were awarded an additional $900.00, and were just awarded $1,800.00 for the 2010 Sustainable Leadership Workshop programs, Spring and Fall.

Our first group enjoying a healthy and nutritious lunch courtesy of H-E-B, and two more of them transforming their lunches into service-learning. The schedule and descriptions of each workshop are available either on our website under Events.
