“We are delighted to bring awards to garden programs across the Midwest,” comments Mike Metallo, president and CEO of the National Gardening Association. “Youth garden programs strengthen the next generation’s connection to the environment and promote responsibility. With the current attention on our nation’s health, gardening has become an increasingly useful tool in the classroom. Garden programs can raise youth to become leaders, empowering them to educate their family and neighbors on ways to bring healthier living to the community.”
