The Women’s Health Resource Library is happy to announce that we have received a grant from the New England Grassroots Environment Fund. This grant will allow us to expand our Incredible Edible Milbridge initiatives by purchasing new gardening tools for our pick-your-own gardens at both the Red Barn Motel and Milbridge Commons Wellness Park and Garden. It also will allow us to develop more of a comprehensive volunteer program at Incredible Edible Milbridge! We are grateful for the hard work that went into procuring this grant and to the New England Grassroots Environment Fund for choosing to support our non-profit.
