HABITAT FOR HUMANITY LANDSCAPING


In May 1999, a partnership was formed between NGC and Habitat for Humanity. HFH's mission is to eliminate poverty housing for the face of the earth. NGC,Inc.'s goal is to encourage garden clubs across the nation to participate in the landscaping of HGH homes. The theme of this project is "Open Your Heart and Hands", and the philosophy is that no commitment - physical or monetary - is too small.

A direct line of communication has been put in place for one-on-one networking between HFH Affiliates and garden club representatives. The more than 15,000 HFH Affilliates have been made aware of the NGC and HFH partnership. A list of HFH Affilliates by State is available from the National Chairman by request.

Emphasis is on enhancing the environment by landscaping HFH homes, landscaping with hearty native trees, shrubs and plants that also attract butterflies. It is the hope of NGC to have the community, both adult and young gardeners, involved in this very worthy project. NGC's goal is 100% participation, in some manner, across the Nation
