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 housiing 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 philosopy is that no
commitment--physical or monetary--is to small. All endeavors
and contributions will be gratefully acknowledged.
A direct line of communication has been put in place for
one-on-one networking beween HFH Affiliates and garden club
representatives. The more than 1,500 HFH Affliates have been
made aware of the NGC and HFH partnership/ A listt of HFH
Affiliates by State is available from the HFH Chairman.
Emphasis is on ehhancing 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

Affiliates by state, please contact Judy Sheets NGC
