Alan Johnson is building a greenhouse to propagate plant material, which he sells for stream restoration projects. The vegetation stabilizes stream banks to prevent soil erosion into the water.

With the greenhouse addition, Alan can grow plants from seed, so that he will no longer need to purchase his plants from outside sources to complete restoration projects.

"The grant has put me at least a year
ahead of schedule," Alan said.
"It’s motivating knowing
I have the support."
