The Chelsea Area Garden Club (CAGC) will award a limited number of grants of $500 or less this spring to local nonprofit organizations or individuals for horticulture-related projects.
Projects should align with the club’s goals: Promote gardening, community beautification, and environmentally responsible horticultural practices and conservation through education in the Chelsea area.
Applications and information about the garden club’s annual grant program are available at www.chelseagardenclub.com or by calling Charlene Harris at 433-9773.
Mail applications to the CAGC Grant Program, P.O. Box 519, Chelsea, MI 48118. Applications must be postmarked by Feb. 28.
Applicants who live in the CAGC service area, primarily western Washtenaw County, will be given preference. Not every applicant may receive funding.
Grant recipients are expected to report on their projects at the garden club’s Oct.14 meeting, at noon at Chelsea First United Methodist Church.
