Winning Projects: Year 5
Thanks to all who participated in the Hartford Decide$ vote that ended on June 29, 2022. We had six amazing projects on the ballot.
2022 WINNING PROJECTS
Hydroponic “Little Living Pantry”
Located at 411 Garden St. (the corner of Garden and Mather), this project will bring garden-fresh, free produce to the North End. The environmental impact is positive, since a hydroponic system uses significantly less water than traditional agriculture. This abandoned lot will be transformed into a visually attractive space and the upkeep by “North End Little Pantries” will be easier than with a traditional garden.
Solar Panels to Charge Digital
Devices in Parks
These solar-powered charging stations, each with 6 USB ports, will be installed in five parks: George H. Day Playground on Arbor/Orange Streets, Keney Park, Brackett Park (outside Parker Memorial Community Center), Bushnell Park, and Colt Park.
Tree Plantings for Schools
Knox Parks will plant 16 shade trees and 5 fruit trees allocated among 3 Hartford Public Schools: Burns Latino Studies Academy, Hartford Public High School and Bulkeley High School – North Campus. These schools were identified by Jack Hale, Chairman of the Hartford Tree Advisory Commission, as needing new tree plantings. Each of these trees comes with a 3-year warranty.
