2016-17 Civic Projects supported by Bloomington Garden Club grants

Since the inception of the Annual Summer Garden Walk in 1990, 95% of the money raised through the annual Garden Walk has been distributed through grants to non-profit civic organizations for education and beautification in Monroe County. None of the money has been used by the Bloomington Garden Club for its own expenses.  
 
Grants from the proceeds of the 2016 Garden Walk were awarded to the following organizations:

 

Animal Shelterto continue maintenance on a previously BGC funded garden

 

Community Kitchen - for seeds and set for raised beds already in place; previously BGC grants have funded the purchase of hand tools and hoop houses

Hilltop Garden & Nature Center - for seed package distribution to schools, youth & family gardens

 

Mother Hubbard's Cupboard Food Pantryfor garden education programs, gardening supplies, and tools
