the need to train new farmers. With the average age of farmers in this country being older than 60, the Horn Farm Center is addressing a crucial need for sustainable living. Last year, the Horn Farm Center had more than 50 classes and workshops on topics covering cooking, foraging, ecological design, farming and gardening, and wilderness skills. “We aren’t organically certified, but we have gone beyond organic in a lot of our practices to make sure we are leaving the soil and woods in a better condition than the way we found it,” says Earl. “I think we’re really at the forefront of ecological change and changing the way we produce food for ourselves—producing it locally and producing it in a way that benefits the air, land, and water we depend on.” The 186-acre property was donated to the county in 1981, but the Horn Farm Center for Agricultural Education exists today because of a group of concerned citizens who, in 2000, petitioned to save the property from industrial development.

The York County Heritage Rail Trail is a main connector leading into Downtown York and has been since 1979. Now itâ€™s getting a $1.5 million upgrade thanks to grants and local donations. The plan is to widen, repave, and add storm water management features to the Rail Trail.
10 YoCo CONNECT | MAY/JUNE 2018 | YCEA-PA.ORG
HERITAGE RAIL TRAIL
The following updates to the Rail Trail will begin in the spring of 2019: • Construction of a 12-foot-wide, two-way multimodal traffic path approximately 1,900 feet in length along the Codorus Creek from West Philadelphia Street to North George Street • The use of pervious pavement for the path will create a linear storm water filter to reduce nutrient loads from urban runoff that could make their way from the Codorus Creek and, eventually, via the Susquehanna River to the Chesapeake Bay • Installation of LED lighting to provide a safer and more inviting environment throughout the evening hours (this lighting will be energy efficient and easily maintained) • Installation of safety, accessibility, and pedestrian-bicycle signals and traffic-calming improvements to trail crossings at West Philadelphia, North Beaver, and North George streets • Installation of an at-grade railroad crossing with signals and possible gates on the York Rail Line • Retrofit North George Street (Bicycle PA Route J) with shared lane markings and signage to Hamilton Avenue to provide alternate facilities for bicyclists • Relocation of the traffic signal with added pedestrian and bicycle-friendly features at Hamilton Avenue (formerly at Jefferson Avenue) to facilitate safe crossing of the trail on North George Street’s busy four lanes

Founded in the early 20th century, Continental Paper Grading (CPG) serves as one of the largest independent waste paper brokers in the United States and Canada. From waste paper buying and selling to services covering shredding, baling, roll cutting, warehousing, and financing, CPG delivers solutions to address global paper needs. YoCo Connect spoke with CPG’s York plant manager Troy Yerger about the company’s role in supporting environmental sustainability locally.

CONTINENTAL PAPER GRADING
Q. How does Continental Paper Grading support green initiatives? A. Since 1919, we have provided recycling options for waste paper, post-industrial and post-consumer plastics, metals, and other products. Q. How has the York community adapted to being more planet-conscious? A. People reach out all the time. The call we often receive is “I don’t want to throw this away. Can you help?” The environment is in everyone’s thoughts right now, and recycling has become a “popular” thing over the years. It’s been great to see people thinking about the green effect now more than ever, both businesses and households. One of our most popular events is the community Shredding Event we hold with the York County Economic Alliance’s (YCEA) help. We partner with AARP, and in the past, we have welcomed over 600 families at some of these events. We try to do these events each April, following Tax Day, to help individuals recycle paperwork no longer needed and ensure they are protected from identity theft or fraud. The volume of cars that arrive, ready to recycle, shows how top of mind recycling is for our community. Q. What is the impact to York County both every day and in the long term? A. In the short term, keeping these recycling items out of landfills, as well as opening our facility for the shredding event, allows people a free way to recycle. In the long term, we are saving the earth a little bit at a time. Saving trees means cleaner oxygen for our environment, and it really starts with that aspect. Q. What can we expect from CPG in the future? A. We’d love to expand our footprint and facility in York County when the time is right. It’s been very successful for us. We are in York to stay; this is our home and we are proud to be here for good. Of course, any expansion of our recycling efforts to reach out even farther into the United States would be ideal. We also are looking forward to connecting with the YCEA membership base to lend our recycling services, share options, and see if we can help them in any way.

SUSQUEHANNA NATIONAL HERITAGE AREA
Since 2008, Susquehanna Heritage and a coalition of local governments, community organizations, and businesses from both Lancaster and York counties have lobbied the U.S. Congress to approve S. 400, sponsored by Senator Bob Casey, and H.R. 2991, sponsored by U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker (R-PA 16th District) and U.S. Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA 4th District). The bills would designate Lancaster and York counties as the Susquehanna National Heritage Area. Q. What would the designation mean to the region? A. The designation would include both Lancaster and York counties as the Susquehanna National Heritage Area, bringing new National Park Service technical support, funding, and branding to our region. National Heritage Areas (NHAs) can leverage the National Park Service brand to attract heritage and outdoor travelers. Q. How many National Heritage Areas exist? A. Currently, 49 NHAs help preserve, promote, and celebrate local heritage, culture, and natural resources for the benefit of current and future generations. NHAs include the Ohio & Erie Canalway, Niagara Falls, and Pittsburghâ€™s Rivers of Steel. Q. Is there an economic benefit to National Heritage Areas? A. In short, yes. NHAs work with communities to collaborate, plan, and implement programs that strengthen community identity, build economic vitality, and attract tourism. A 2012 study showed that NHAs contribute $12.9 billion annually to the national economy, support 148,000 jobs, and generate $1.2 billion in federal taxes. The Susquehanna NHA comes at a perfect time, when the river towns of Columbia, Marietta, and Wrightsville are building efforts to attract development and capitalize on the great resource that is the Susquehanna River. The NHA effort is ongoing, and the York County Economic Alliance is proud to support designation of our region as the Susquehanna National Heritage Area. Susquehanna Heritage needs your help to petition your U.S. representatives and senators to support and advance H.R. 2991 and S. 400 through Congress. To get involved, visit susquehannaheritage.org/about-us or call Susquehanna Heritage at 717.252.0229. With your efforts, we can get one step closer to designating our region as Americaâ€™s 50th National Heritage Area. Mark Platts, president of Susquehanna Heritage, contributed to this report.

UNITED WAY OF YORK COUNTY: IMPROVING THE LIVES OF YOUTH
Since 2012, the United Way of York County has focused considerable attention and $2.5 million in funding on programming efforts focused on behavioral and physical health. During that time, more than 3,000 youth and adults received education about the importance of healthy eating habits. Eighty-five percent of over 2,600 youth and adults in behavioral health and intellectual disabilities programs reached goals for improving behavioral health. These successes are part of the United Way of York County’s continued work to achieve its mission of uniting resources to create a positive, lasting impact on people’s lives, including the youngest members of the community. The United Way provides financial support for 28 programs designed to help young mothers and their newborns and youth to stay active and eat healthy. Through the United Way’s Community Fund, nonprofit organizations such as the Children’s Aid Society, Family First Health, Leg Up Farm, the York County Children’s Advocacy Center, and the YWCA Hanover and York have received collectively more than $200,000 for programs ranging from a crisis nursery to pediatric outpatient therapy.

YORK COUNTY YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH ALLIANCE: #TSEH (THE SILENCE ENDS HERE) The York County Youth Mental Health Alliance began in April 2016 by a group of school social workers, school counselors, and school psychologists from across 17 school districts throughout York County. The mission of this student-led initiative is to lift up the voices of York County’s youth on issues impacting mental health. With its hashtag, #TSEH (The Silence Ends Here), the alliance strives to overcome the stigma of and call attention to mental health and York County’s youth. In early 2017, the alliance organized a town hall meeting with about 80 students who represented every school district in York County. The students met with York County officials and Pennsylvania state agency leaders and engaged them in conversations about the mental health issues affecting the county’s youth, such as social media and cyberbullying, drug addition, and stress. Last May, the alliance hosted a “Light Up the Night” event at Northeastern High School featuring a mental health fair and 1-mile fun run that attracted community support from more than 700 people. This year’s “Light Up the Night” will take place on Saturday, May 12, at Northeastern Middle School, 4855 Board Rd., Mount Wolf.

UPCOMING EVENTS MAIN STREET HANOVER LAUNCHES ART ALLEY Main Street Hanover’s public art committee, Art Alley, is excited to announce its first public art program— a pretzel sculpture series. With the help of Hanover High School students and teachers and Riley Welding, Art Alley created a pretzel design that will be decorated by local artists and go up for display in downtown Hanover to represent the community. Pretzels highlight the rich snack food history of Hanover, and the shape of the pretzel creates an interactive sculpture that people can enjoy seeing around the Art Alley. This downtown public art initiative seeks to build an environment where artists—from students and amateurs to professionals—feel welcome and encouraged to be engaged with the downtown improvement efforts. Art Alley is where artists and economic development collide.
CHALK IT UP JOINS ARTSFEST ArtsFest is a new event for Main Street Hanover this year. While still in the planning phase, we at Main Street Hanover know for certain it will include a Chalk It Up event, live art, artists’ vendor booths, and live music throughout the day in downtown Hanover. Stay tuned for more details.
