By Cheryl Wells, ACGC
The Chelsea Area Garden Club (CAGC) will provide a limited number of grants of up to $ 500 in 2022 to local non-profit organizations for projects related to sustainable horticulture. The deadline to apply is February 15, 2022.
Grants support projects that promote a love of gardening, community beautification, environmentally friendly horticultural practices, and conservation through education and by example. Applications and information on the annual grant program are available at www.chelseagardenclub.com.
Applications should be mailed to the CACG Grants Program, c / o Cheryl Wells, 98 Cedar Lake Rd, Chelsea, MI 48118. Applicants from the CACG Service Area – Chelsea and the West from Washtenaw County – will be preferred.
Participation in the garden club includes providing educational programs, community engagement through civic beautification, and horticultural grants and scholarships. This fall, CAGC planted more than 1,700 tulip and spring bulbs in Chelsea’s urban flowerbeds and in the planters of the Chelsea District Library. The CAGC designs and plants the annual flower beds for the summer town and the library every year. Horticultural Grants are awarded to local not-for-profit organizations and start-up projects that benefit the community and align with the mission and goals of the ACCG. The CCGA presented the Arts in the Garden Benefit Walk last July to benefit the CSC Intergenerational Garden.
