Facility Improvement Clarke County Animal Shelter
We used the grant money to purchase outside kennels for Clarke County Animal Shelter.
The kennels are used every day to put dogs in so that the inside kennels can be cleaned.
Prior to our purchase the dogs were breaking out of the old kennels and were getting injured.
This was an absolute blessing to me and others at our little vegetable farm. Some of the monies were utilize to procure educational classes that will be available to us for a lifetime. Organic farming is challenging to say the least and this proven successful methodology will be completely beneficial to not only us but others that will be taught.
Other monies were utilized to procure irrigation equipment to be used in and environmentally friendly application. Well conserving water and controlling any erosion possibilities.
We cannot thank ALA-TOM enough for this huge shot in the arm.
STEAM Activities for HIPPY and PAT Group Meetings
HIPPY and PAT are home visiting programs that work directly with parents to help them become their child’s “first teacher”. One of the requirements of both programs is to hold monthly group meetings/connections to offer additional assistance in meeting the needs of the parents and children. During this time the children are worked with on a variety of skills. STEAM activities will allow us to reinforce skills already being taught in the homes through HIPPY and PAT, thus better preparing our children for their future academic success. Our focus is that childen learn through play naturally. Having these activities will allows us to be proactive in their learning by providing the basics of what they will need in their future.
Thomasville Alabama Community Garden Improvements
The goal of the project is to improve the community garden by adding flowering bushes in the wall of the garden, replacing the pump in the fountain in the center of the garden, and by adding outdoor art to improve the looks of the garden. By making these improvements more people will be attracted to the garden and maybe get involved in volunteering and working together with others in the community to provide vegetables for anyone who may need them.
