Horticulture Grant Plants Opportunities

At the end of April, the Rotary Club of East Montgomery County (RCEMC) partnered with New Horizons New Caney (NHNC) to expand their horticultural program.  NHNC is a sheltered workshop for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. While they train on a variety of tasks, a favorite of the patrons is their horticultural program. RCEMC assisted NHNC in building two additional garden beds for growing herbs. Thriving herb gardens are vital in producing the plants used in making their all-natural tea blends and herbal-infused apple cider vinegars. Patrons work in all phases of the growth of the plants  needed to produce their products. These products are then sold to the public at their local shop, as well as community events. The funds generated are then used to continue to provide quality programming and activities for the NHNC patrons.
