Newport’s Big Blue Big Barn!
Ever since our field trip with Newport community leaders to the Red Shed in Olneyville (video here) we’ve been making steady progress on the Newport version: The Big Blue Bike Barn.
in addition to the original strategy grant, Rhode Island Foundation awarded us $10,000 to ensure green infrastructure at the upcoming facility.
The work will include adding solar, collecting rainwater and fabricating furniture from locally sourced wood. We’ll keep you posted on more progress as it happens. Meanwhile check out this Newport Daily News article for the latest. Find out more.
Our many community partners include: City of Newport, Aquidneck Land Trust, Newport Health Equity Zone, Newport County YMCA, Aquidneck Island Community Table, Gambrell Landscaping, Sunbelt Rentals, Reynolds Dewalt, Standard Modern, Newport Solar.
