A New Scholarship Forest Coming to HCC for GreenFest


Just in time for Earth Day, Howard Community College (HCC), Howard County Government, and the Columbia 50th Birthday Board have partnered to create a “Scholarship Forest” on the college’s Columbia campus.

To achieve this, the county provided 50 trees to be planted between Lot A and Duncan Hall, along Scholarship Drive. The trees will be eligible to be sponsored by a donor with a gift of $1,000. The funds will be placed in a Columbia 50th Scholarship Forest Endowment to help county residents in financial need.

The trees will be on site on April 22, for the county’s tenth annual GreenFest, held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The popular event is expected to draw a crowd of more than 2,500, and encourages attendees to be sustainable.

“The theme this year is Earth Day Every Day,” said Bob Marietta, HCC’s sustainability manager. “There are eighty different vendors offering everything – from chainsaw carving to the Black Flag Brewing Company.”
