National Garden Club, Inc.’s grant program with The Ames Companies, Inc. began in 2014. The Ames Companies has generously agreed to extend its in-kind grant program for 2021.
Now is the time to apply; the application deadline is March 1, 2021. Take advantage of this benefit of being an NGC member garden club. You may select tools up to a retail value of $250 for your community garden or garden therapy club project. Details may be found under “Awards & Grants-Ames Tools.” Select “Resources and Forms” to find the application and the tool Item Selection List. Many tools are appropriate for children or gardeners who prefer a cushion grip handle.
Garden tools with a total retail value of $4,500 are available for NGC gardening projects. Gardening programs performed or supported by NGC local member clubs and scheduled to be carried out March 1 through September 30, 2021 are eligible. Projects may be a joint venture with another organization, however the garden club applying must be a member of NGC. Awarded tools will be shipped to the successful applicants in May of this year.
