in News by Karen Hessel

On Friday, May 27th, Hudson Park Children’s Greenhouse (HPCG) committee members visited the office of NRfuture at 247 North Avenue to collect their $500 check, which was granted as a part of the NRfuture “Future Five Grants” program.  According to the nrfuture.com website, the Future Five “is an initiative by the people for the people to revitalize the downtown through five community-chosen priorities: Public Space + Storefront Beautification, Local Business Development, Food + Dining Scene, Millennial Engagement, and Arts + Culture.” When advocating for this project, the HPCG members said that having a public greenhouse within walking distance to downtown New Rochelle would be a desirable feature to attract future apartment dwellers for the planned new downtown residential buildings.
