Haywood Master Gardeners to give grants

Written by 

The Haywood County Master Gardener Volunteer Association is accepting applications for grants for horticultural projects in Haywood County. The deadline for submissions is Monday, Oct. 1.

The grant money must be used for research or educational purposes in the area of environment, gardening or horticulture. Beautification projects will not qualify. For example, in previous years, several local schools have requested and received grants for greenhouses and gardens to teach students how to propagate and care for plants. Applications for grants more than $200 should be accompanied by a detailed budget and timeline. Each application must have a Master Gardener sponsor, who will review the application and budget, oversee funding and report to the MGVA on the progress of the project. 828.456.3575.

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
