Munford Elem. Wins Green Challenge Award

Richmond's Mary Munford Elementary School has received the Community Outreach Award in this year's Central Virginia Connect the Dots for Green Schools Challenge.  The award was presented by the James River Green Building Council (JRGBC) at a special ceremony held June 7.

     Munford, one of seven area schools to receive an award, was recognized for installing a pollinator garden that included a refurbished greenhouse, rain barrels and composting bins.  The school also implemented a compost and recycling program at lunch, recycled fluorescent bulbs and hosted environmental workshops.

     Jennifer Daoulas, a landscape designer with Timmons Group, an engineering firm, served as project mentor.
