Three $1000 grants will be awarded to local NJ Garden Clubs for a project that focuses on the planting of native trees. Look for more information in the Awards section of GCNJ website. Applications are due by February 15, 2022.
I am honored to have been elected the 50th President of the Garden Club of New Jersey at our first virtual Annual Meeting on June 10th. I look forward to working with all affiliated garden clubs as we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic and return to in-person meetings and events. The theme of my presidency is “Plant Trees: Nature’s Unsung Heroes”. Trees are one of earth’s most valuable resources and they are being destroyed, worldwide, at an alarming rate to commercial agriculture, wildfires, logging and urbanization. I ask you to join me and the Garden Club of New Jersey in conserving, protecting and planting trees for future generations. Over the course of my two-year term, the Garden Club of New Jersey will award six $1000 grants to affiliated garden clubs that sponsor a project that focuses on the planting of trees. An application for these grants will soon be available on our website. As we move forward, it is my hope that we will, not only, plant together but also learn together, protect our environment together and, once again, meet together to share our common interests and achieve our common goals.
The Garden Club of New Jersey, Inc. provides education, resources and opportunities for adults and youth members to expand the love of gardening and floral design and encourages active participation in civic, environmental and historic preservation projects to protect the past for the future.
