Community Outreach

by Eva Mannaberg

Our Community Outreach Program for 2016 has granted scholarships to 4 children to attend Warren Park Day camp. In 2015, 2 children received the scholarship and in 2014, one child was granted the scholarship.
Three local schools, Armstrong, Boone and Waters, have received $300.00 each in order to further their school gardening projects. Armstrong will build a conifer garden, Boone will grow vegetables in raised beds and Waters will use the grant to continue its Sustainable Garden Project.

For more information, visit the Communty Service page.

NGS Volunteers Honored


The NGS members who gave of their time in 2016 were honored at a dinner in January. Without their help we would not be able to care for our gardens in the parks, offer educational programs or host fund-raisers. Their work is greatly appreciated.







Coming Events

is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity.
