Further to the community garden awards discussion, everyone please try to
nominate a garden for the John Deer-sponsored Seeds of Hope progam:
NOMINATIONS SOUGHT FOR "JOHN DEERE SEEDS OF HOPE" PROGRAM
National Search Honors Those Who Bring Nature's Beauty To Urban Areas
Through Community Gardens
In urban neighborhoods across America, hardworking volunteers are turning
vacant lots and abandoned sites into spectacular community gardens. Now it's
time to once again honor these unsung heroes. The John Deere Seeds of Hope
program will identify America's most beautiful community gardens and salute
those who tend them.
To help select the winners, organizers of the program are seeking
nominations of deserving gardens. Nominated gardens will be judged on the
basis of community involvement (including the participation of area youth),
creativity and effort. Local residents, volunteers, organizers and
supporters are all welcome to nominate their favorite community garden.
To receive a nomination form:
send: a self-addressed, stamped letter-sized envelope to:
Bill Stoller, Program Coordinator
Stoller & Bard Communications
6 Horizon Road - Suite 1705
Fort Lee, NJ 07024
**Nominations will be accepted through August 15.
