Colorado Garden Foundation Awards Grant to Colorado Master Gardener Program
In May 2016 Colorado Garden Foundation (CGF) awarded a $5000 grant to the Colorado Master Gardener program. The monies will be used to support purchase of educational materials and supplies. The items will be used to provide in-depth training and on-line support for approximately 1400 volunteers enrolled in the statewide program.
Grants and scholarships are awarded from ticket proceeds generated at the CGF’s two annual shows: Colorado Garden & Home Show and Colorado Fall Home Show. Since the 1970s, Colorado Garden Foundation has awarded more than $6.8 million to more than 250 organizations in Colorado.
