Attention my garden peeps: I need a favor. The National Garden Bureau is offering a grant to horticultural therapy programs that submitted videos. They have narrowed it down to three options and want folks to vote for the video they like best. The folks running the horticultural therapy program at the NC Botanical Garden submitted one for the work they do with The Farm at Penny Lane. It is a great program that is chronically under-funded.
I just went to the NGB site and voted for them, and when the results page came up, they are way behind compared to the other two programs. This is the only finalist from the southeast region, and I would appreciate it if you folks would go visit the link and vote for The Farm at Penny Lane.
Thanks for your help!

Wow, I just did this. They really need votes! Is anyone putting a request on the Garden’s Facebook page? Sure hope so… Thanks for bringing this to my attention, Catherine!

Hi, Laura! Yes, in the last hour, someone did post it on the NCBG Facebook page, so I’m hoping this will help. They are quite far behind. I’m hoping we can at least generate enough votes to help this great program finish second.

We’ve just tweeted and we’ve asked for a mention at the state garden club meeting to spread the word.
