BOYDS MILL - SEEDS of Northeastern Pennsylvania will host The Highlights Foundation in a virtual presentation, where it will reveal its plan for special sustainability initiatives in the Boyds Mill retreat center.

The Highlights Foundation is opening its doors for community members to learn about these initiatives in a Zoom presentation.

SEEDS has been an important part of this partnership and is excited to provide this overview of the project as well. Please join us via Zoom on May 11 at 8pm.

The program is free, but registration is required. To register for this event, fill out this form. Thanks to the COVID-19 Restart Grant it received from Pennsylvania Energy Development Authority (PEDA), The Highlights Foundation is able to accomplish many wanted sustainability projects that will improve energy efficiency and reduce costs for the center. This grant includes funding for:

  • 105kW solar garden

  • 23 mini-split heat/air conditioning units (one per cabin)

  • Spray foam insulation

  • Energy monitoring system

  • Educational opportunities

For over 35 years, The Highlights Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, has been positively impacting the lives of children by amplifying the voices of storytellers who inform, educate, and inspire children to become their best selves. This is achieved through workshops and events that teach adults how to write and illustrate to children.
