Deadline for therapeutic garden grants

In 2017, National Garden Bureau and Sakata Seed America are partnering to provide $5,000 in grant money to be split among three therapeutic gardens in North America. National Garden Bureau promotes the health and healing powers of human interaction with plants through a yearly grant program for therapeutic gardens.

To apply, therapeutic garden applicants should complete an application and submit it to the NGB office by July 1, 2017. In July and August, a group of horticulture therapy experts will narrow down applications to three finalists. The finalists will be asked to submit a one-minute video that will be posted on ngb.org. All involved parties will solicit feedback from the public, using social media, to vote on the garden they wish to receive the grants. The top vote-getter will receive $3,000, second and third place will receive $1,000 each.
