Applications Available for 2012 Green America Awards
Do you know a local community garden or community “greening” project that could use $2,000 in free plants?
If so, tell them to apply for the 2012 Nature Hills Nursery Green America Awards.

The award program is sponsored by Omaha-based Nature Hills Nursery.
