To encourage the beautification of Bolton Hill’s public spaces through gardening, the Bolton Hill Garden Club awards grants each year to residents and neighborhood groups through their Green Space Grants Program.
The club conducts three fundraising activities throughout the year: a spring plant sale, a fall pansy sale, and a holiday greens sale. They then funnel the proceeds from these events back into the neighborhood through their grants program.
This spring, they awarded over $4,000 to 9 different projects throughout the neighborhood, including the planting of flowers, shrubbery, and trees, as well as the maintenance of flower beds. See the 2016 grant winners here.
