Habitat for Humanity Landscaping
In May 1999, a partnership was formed between National
Garden Clubs, Inc and Habitat for Humanity. HFH's mission is
to eliminate poverty housing from the face of the earth.
NGC's goal is to encourage garden clus across the nation to
participate in the landscaping of HFH homes. The theme of
this project is "Open Your Heart and Hands," and the philosophy is
that no commitment - physical or monetary - is too small. All
endeavors and contributions will be gratefully
A direct line of communication has been put in place for
one-on-one networking between HFH Affiliates and garden club
representatives. The more than 1,500 HFH Affiliates have been
made aware of the NGC and HFH partnership. A list of HFH Affiliates
by State is available from the HFH Chairman.
Emphasis is on enhancing the environment by landscaping HFH
homes, landscaping with hearty native trees, shrubs and plants that
also attract butterflies. It is the hope of NGC to have the
community, both adult and young gardeners, involved in this very
worthy project. NGC's goal is 100% participation, in some
manner across the nation.
