Another Successful Year for the PTCHP

The Port Towns Community Health Partnership is celebrating its sixth year with many successes for 2015.   
-Port Towns Farmers Market opened and operated in Autumn Woods from July to September.  Kudos to all of the work of ECO City Farms in putting the Farmers Market together.
-End Time Harvest Ministries had a successful summer internship program with students working at all four of the Port Towns (Bladensburg, Colmar Manor, Cottage City and Bladensburg), ECO City Farms, Emerson House and Joe's Movement.
-Prince George's County Food Equity Council helped to pass the county's food truck ordinance, requiring that food trucks around the metro stations sell healthy food options.
-The Town of Colmar Manor with Port Towns Community Health Partnership hosted a successful pervious pavement workshop for local contractors in order to help the Anacostia River, the Chesapeake Bay and the local economy.
-The Town of Cottage City created another great community garden-and a wonderful website to keep everyone informed about the community garden.
-The Town of Bladensburg coordinated the Muncipal Collaborative grant for weatherization for the fourth year.  Over thirty municipalities benefited from the great work of Bladensburg who wrote and led the grant.  More importantly, low income families will be warm this winter and cooler this summer with many of the families getting new refrigerators to store healthy produce and medicine, where needed.
