MINI-GRANT PROGRAM

Inspiring Lower Cape K-12 Students to “Go-Green and Protect our Pollinators”

-The Nauset Garden Club Founder’s Pledge-

The Nauset’s planted and gardened, the keepers of this fragile land. They respected life all around them and were thankful for gifts in the sand. We hope to continue this heritage, take nothing for granted with this land.

"We pledge to preserve if we’re able, this air, water, beauty so grand.” 

Our Club supports Education

   

The Nauset Garden Club has a “Go Green and Protect Our Pollinators” mini-grant program. Mini-Grants in the amount of up to $500.00 and up to $1000.00 are offered annually, by the Nauset Garden Club, to K-12 public school educators in our regional system...Brewster, Chatham, Eastham, Harwich, Orleans, Provincetown, Truro, and Wellfleet. We have awarded thirty-two deserving programs over the last five years.

 

The purpose of this community outreach program is to give teachers and their students the opportunity to do projects that will inspire a life-long love and respect for our environment and our planet while also encouraging creativity, critical thinking and open-mindedness in the pursuit of sustainable solutions for the future.

Though many popular hydrangeas originate from Asia, there are several species that call the United States home. Our latest trial evaluated three closely related species of hydrangea that are native to the eastern United States — Hydrangea arborescens, Hydrangea cinerea, and Hydrangea radiata and their related cultivars.  To Read the full report click below
