Green Corn Project is delighted to be the recipient of the first environmental grant awarded by Patagonia’s Austin store. Jim Hansel, store manager, handed GCP president Mitch Mills the $3,000 check on Saturday, May 30, while Green Corn Project tabled at the store.

We will use the grant money to increase our capacity, build more gardens, and buy a shed to store our tools. Thanks so much to Jim, Meghan Coyner, and Lisa Edwards for their support!

We are also excited to be tabling this summer alongside Patagonia at Blues on the Green. The first show, featuring Ruthie Foster, is this Wednesday, June 3rd, starting at 7:30 pm. Blues on the Green is being held at Waterloo Park this year. Click here for more information and the complete schedule.

Be sure to stop by the Patagonia booth for a chance to win GCP t-shirts, books, and plants!
