CL&P Awards Grant to Friends of Boulder Knoll
Connecticut Light & Power (CL&P) Awards Environmental Grant to Friends of Boulder Knoll- Kimberly Stoner, president of the Friends of Boulder Knoll, Jeffrey Rapoport, secretary, Friends of Boulder Knoll, Friends of Boulder Knoll farmer Brenda Caldwell and State Representative Elizabeth Esty. The Friends of Boulder Knoll will use the grant to make improvements to their community farm on Boulder Road in Cheshire. The addition of a new shade house for outdoor seedling growth and a wooden rack to display educational information are on their agenda. Friends of Boulder Knoll is a nonprofit organization that describes its general mission as “educating community members in the responsible uses of open space.”
Twice a year, CL&P accepts applications for grants to fund environmental initiatives in communities served by the company. CL&P’s Environmental Community Grant Program funds community and grassroots environmental projects often overlooked by large-grant programs. Eligible projects protect or preserve the environment, or teach others the value of doing so. Applications will again be accepted in the spring of 2010.
