The Northwest Louisiana Master Gardeners have announced this year’s recipients of NWLAMG community grants.
NWLAMG awards grants to organizations and municipalities that support beautification and horticultural education within our community.
Of particular interest are projects that make a difference in the community, that are sustainable, and involve collaboration among local organizations.
The NWLA Master Gardeners awarded a total of $20,000. The winners of the community grant program are:
The NWLA Master Gardeners launched this program in 2010 as a way to give back to the community after all the support given each year for the Le Tour des Jardins, Fall Bulb Sale, and Spring Plant Sale.
The mission of the Master Gardeners is to educate the public about gardening and engage the community in horticultural pursuits. Giving these grants allows them to multiply their efforts by aiding and funding projects envisioned, implemented and maintained by other groups.
