Do you have an innovative idea to support gardening education in your community?

We invite all Multnomah Master™ Gardener Chapter members to think about innovative ideas which support our mission of bringing relevant, research-based garden education to the public and in neighborhoods throughout the metropolitan area.  

Your Multnomah Chapter Board has approved a new opportunity for members to apply for funds up to $300 to support their innovative ideas.  Interns and Perennial MGs  who are certified and members of the Multnomah Chapter of Master Gardeners are encouraged to apply for the

Garden Educator Community Project Mini-Grant

Here are some ideas for a Garden Educator Community Project:

Talks and Presentations

For example, presentations on topics such as sustainable gardening, composting or integrated pest management for your neighborhood association or at a local Earth Day event.  

Workshops and Demonstrations

Have you thought about offering a demonstration or hands-on activity in your neighborhood on plant propagation, pruning, soil sampling or installing a low-flow irrigation system?

Education of Youth in the Community

Do you have ideas about supporting a field trip for children in your local school to learn about sustainable gardening or helping a neighborhood group of kids participate in the Junior Master Gardening program? 

Interested?  Check out the MCMG Garden Educator Mini-Grant Application.  

Application deadlines are ongoing on the 15th of the month throughout the year.
