GPIP Receives a $22,400 Grant

trees-dug26 large pin oaks, pears, tupelos, maples and other trees now grace Glastonbury streets thanks to a grant from the Norma and Natale Sestero Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving at was awarded to GPIP, late in 2014.

Most of the grant money was used to dig the 26 trees from our tree nursery and to hire two local landscape companies to plant them along the New London Turnpike, in South Glastonbury and other selected locations around town.

The remaining grant funds will be used to purchase new trees for the nursery and for more planting next spring. GPIP is very thankful to the Sestero Fund at the Hartford Foundation of Public Giving for helping to make Glastonbury a more attractive and environmentally-friendly Town.
