The Lowell Film Collaborative has been honored to work together the last several years with Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust on an annual environmentally-themed film series. As excited as we were to join with LPCT on this initiative, we never imagined we'd still be going strong 5 years later! This inspiring organization epitomizes community and has become a beloved event partner AND supporter. We look forward to growing our relationship with LPCT and to celebrating their mission and their impact on the City of Lowell!
We are working with home owners who have completed our training program and purchased a home with down payment assistance. We are encouraging these new home owners to "Plant - a - Tree" to celebrate home ownership. This collaboration with the Lowell Parks and Conservation Trust is a wonderful way for two organizations to partner in an effort to make Lowell a greener community.
