National Garden Bureau launched a philanthropic program in 2014 that supports the building and growth of therapeutic gardens across North America. This program furthers NGB’s mission of promoting gardening to gardeners and non-gardeners alike.
“Caring for plants and experiencing nature brings healing and purpose to people whose lives have been affected by illness, addiction, violence or military service,” comments Heather Kibble, NGB Past-President. “National Garden Bureau, in partnership with local therapeutic organizations, strives to make gardening accessible to everyone, no matter their situation, history or abilities. Our garden grant program impacts individual lives using garden-based education and therapy.”
