Nature Hills Nursery Green America Awards

Omaha, NE (PRWEB) January 21, 2009

The Nature Hills Nursery Green America Awards is a new annual award program created by Nature Hills Nursery. Nature Hills Nursery offers plant grants and national recognition to the winners, and is currently accepting project submissions from community groups and local organizations.

Any local community group or nonprofit organization can apply by submitting a gardening or "greening" project for consideration. Nature Hills Nursery is looking for submissions that aim to improve local environments; projects that are literally "greening" communities, parks, schools and public spaces by planting trees, shrubs and other plants.

Many Nature Hills Nursery Green America Award Applications have already been received from boy scout groups, church and school organizations, booster clubs and other groups throughout the United States. Potential award winning project ideas could range from the refurbishing of a landscape in a community park to the reclamation of an abandoned lot with the creation of a fruit orchard that will provide much needed fruit to nearby low-income residents.

The Nature Hills Nursery Green America Awards Grand Prize winning garden project will receive $2,500 in plants from Nature Hills Nursery. The First Prize winner will receive $1,500 in plants and the Second Prize winner will receive $1,000 in plants. The plant materials can contain any combination of trees, fruit trees, bushes and shrubs, perennials and vegetable seeds that Nature Hills Nursery offers.

Applications for the Nature Hills Nursery Green America Awards will be accepted now until April 1, 2009, with the inaugural award winners chosen on April 2, 2009. The winners of the 2009 Nature Hills Nursery Green America Awards will be announced on April 17, 2009. To apply for the 2009 award online, visit the Nature Hills Nursery Green America Awards website.
