'People Helping People'
The Master Gardener Foundation of Spokane County became recipients of a Boeing Employees Credit Union 'People Helping People' grant award and are the only grant recipients in Spokane County. The award was presented in October 2017.
Since that time we have used the grant to support specific community gardens in low-income neighborhoods by offering free of charge gardening classes, mentorship, and purchase of tools and supplies. A portion of the grant will also support community outreach to increase awareness of the Master Gardener Program.
