The Comox Valley Horticultural Society is now accepting applications for its Gardens in Bloom grants, which have been funded through sponsorship and ticket sales from the 2019 Fall Garden Tour.
Nearly $3,000 in total is available to non-profit organizations, such as schools, churches or community groups, to showcase their horticultural activities located in the Comox Valley. Projects that qualify include community enhancement or garden development, workshops, mentoring programs, or group education. The CVHS will also consider any program or project that increases the awareness of health and economic benefits and ecological and environmental impact of gardening.
For additional information, visit www.comoxvalleyhortsociety.ca, where the grant application form and application guide are available. Submission deadline is Feb. 29, 2020, and funding will be dispersed by March 23, 2020.
