Marketplace and Garden, Projects /

Two grants awarded!

We are excited to share some good news with you!

Missouri Waste Management has awarded APEDF a rainscaping grant that will fund permeable pavers for the One Africa! One Nation! Marketplace and Gary Brooks Community Garden!

The pavers, which are part of the plan designed by dtls Landscape Architecture, allow rainwater to drain into the ground, easing the load on the sewer system.

APEDF has also received a grant from Brightside St. Louis, as part of their Neighbors Naturescaping project.

It will fund native plants, shrubs, trees, grasses and gardening tools to help turn Gary Brooks’ beautiful vision for the marketplace and garden space into reality.

Help win more grants for Black Power Blueprint projects!
