577 Foundation Honored

Dedicated to spreading “love of the land,” The 577 Foundation was recently awarded the Civic Improvement Commendation by The Garden Club of America, an honor for its “outstanding efforts and progressive community spirit through sharing its resources and fostering exploration, experimentation and creative learning.” Since the 577 was established by Virginia Secor Stranahan in 1988, the Foundation has maintained a garden space promoting exploration, peace and diversity. Executive Director Heather Gallant said, “With this commendation and our beautiful partnership with the Country Garden Club, The 577 Foundation continues to evolve and grow as a work of art inspired by Virginia, and it is continuously being molded by the community.”
