Red Vest Day: Lowe’s associates will be on campus at the RMSC Museum & Science Center to kick off the construction of a community garden, green space, “Pollinator Park”, and outdoor educational space. 



The RMSC received a Lowe’s Hometowns grant this past summer to create a community garden and space for outdoor learning in the heart of downtown Rochester. The community garden is one of 100 community-nominated impact projects that were selected as part of this year's Lowe's Hometowns program, with 2022 serving as the first of a five-year, $100 million commitment to the communities it serves. You can read more about the grant and project here



This event is being held for RMSC staff and volunteers from our local Lowe’s as a kick-off event. 



The community garden is being constructed in the green space to the left of the Strasenburgh Planetarium (when entering from East Avenue).
