If your town organization has a new or ongoing project which supports Suffield Garden Club’s purpose, we invite you to apply for a grant of up to $300.

Projects which “stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening and the art of flower arranging; aid in the protection of trees, plants and birds; encourage civic beautification or instill a respect for the environment” are all eligible. In evaluating applications, priority will be given to projects that emphasize benefits to the community and/or community involvement and participation.

Applications must be submitted through a non-profit organization. Scouts, students and teachers should apply through their troop or school. Forms can be requested by e-mail to: Deadline for applications is May 1, 2019. Funds for these grants come from the profits of the recent Holiday Tree Gala.
