Here’s a Simple Way to Spruce up Your Community

by on February 2, 2010

Is there a sad-looking park near your house that could really use some greenery? Is that vacant lot at the end of your block begging for a community garden? If so, now is the time to get to know your neighbors and put a plan into action.

Non-profit groups and organizations can apply online for the 2010 Nature Hills Nursery Green America Awards. Submit your plan of how you’d use the donated trees, shrubs, and other plants to improve a barren or neglected space. The grand prize winner gets $2,500 in plants and two other groups will receive plants valued at $1,500 and $1,000. How’s that for a win-win?

The deadline is April 1, so apply soon!
