Wilmington Green Box Launched!

The energy, ingenuity, and passion of the young people in Wilmington are leading to truly great things!

Jason Aviles and John Naughton have started Wilmington Green Box - a way to bring fresh fruits and vegetables to neighborhoods throughout the city.

And here's some exciting news:

I'll just quote from Jason here:

 ArtPlaceAmerica announced that Wilmington Green Box is one of 80 projects that it will consider for its 2016 National Creative Placemaking Fund!!!! 

These 80 projects are 6% of the 1,361 initial applications that ArtPlace reviewed!

ArtPlace America’s National Creative Placemaking Fund is a highly competitive national program that invests money in communities across the country.

Wilmington Green Box has proposed a project that will bring artist, local farms, healthy food companies, developers, and designers together to creatively build a modern, redesigned structure composed of recycled shipping containers. These containers will be infused with artistic expression and sustainability principals to provide our community with a unique storefront structure that will make fresh produce and healthy goods accessible and affordable. Also, our project will incorporate outdoor functional space that will serve the local community as a creative hub for exposure to the arts, entertainment, culture and building relationships.

 

Keep your eyes open for the Wilmington Green Box and enjoy the great food they're delivering.
