To encourage youth understanding and involvement, a new youth book, “The Saved Seed” has been released to help youngsters understand the life cycle of seed plants.
Also as part of the PLANT AMERICA project, tours are being set up so attendees can experience a variety of gardens across the USA.
In addition, Espoma (manufacturer of Hollytone and other organic products) is contributing to 20 local garden clubs across America to receive up to $250.00 in grants of Espoma organic plant food and potting soils. There is no deadline and applications are processed on a first-come, first serve basis. For additional informaton: http://www.gardenclub.org/projects/espoma.aspx
We are excited that GCO’s own Betty Cookendorfer is the Chairman of this great program so we are hoping for strong support from GCO clubs.
