Weed & Seed Workshop Tonight

Weed & Seed is still looking for applications from consultants, governments, non-profits and other service providers.

The steering committee for the Norristown Weed & Seed program is accepting applications from consultants, governments, non-profits and other service providers who are interested in working with Weed & Seed to further the goals and objectives of the initiative.

They'll be holding another workshop tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the  for any parties interested in submitting an application. These workshops will be open forums to discuss how to respond to the request for proposals (RFP).
