Member Duties : During the 2018-2019 program year, the MCN VISTA member will create and implement a sustainability plan for the NRRC house and its environmental initiatives. This will involve researching and writing grant proposals to obtain funds for full implementation of this "healthy initiative,--the NRRC House" including plans for a greenhouse, vegetable, herb, medicinal, and rain gardens, play structures, a wind turbine, and solar panels. To this end NRRC has already entered into a partnership with the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization to educate our staff about water use and run-off and implement a rain garden at the NRRC house.
