Paging All Gardeners!

I grew up with my grandmother, and I saw how fascinated she is when it comes to gardening. She has this huge flower garden filled with different kinds of flowers. She also has a spot for all of her orchids that attracts most people who visits her. She sell some of them because some people are interested in purchasing her flowers. I thought she makes pretty good amount of money on selling these flowers.
Are you a gardener? Have you ever heard of the Project Orange Thumb grant? Project Orange Thumb grant is a great resource to provide the tools and funding needed to either begin a garden or enhance an already existing one. The grant is open to any group of individuals concerned with greening, sustainable agriculture, horticultural education or neighborhood beautification. Basically anyone who is interested in starting or maintaining an existing garden in their community can submit an application and will have the chance to receive the grant.
If awarded a grant, the group will receive up to $1000 in green goods and up to $1,500 in Fiskars gardening tools. Marking our 6th successful year in 2008, Project Orange ThumbSM has provided over 100 community groups with over $300,000 to create and develop their own special community gardens. The application deadline for the 2009 Project Orange Thumb grant cycle is February 17, 2009. So what are you waiting for? Apply now today!
