In observation Greenbelt’s 75th anniversary, the alight dance theater created a site-specific dance/movement installation at the Greenbelt Museum with support from GCF.
In 2010, Chesapeake Education, Arts and Research Society (CHEARS) received a grant to create a “Three Sisters” demonstration garden in each of the three sections of Greenbelt. The goal of the project was to illustrate a sustainable food-growing system in which diverse crops and trees mutually support each other’s well-being.
In 2009, GCF funded a summer program for elementary and middle school kids in Greenbelt West. This enrichment program was designed to provide safe, supervised recreational activities while re-forcing academic and social skills.
