Special Projects

South Atlantic Regional Special Project
“AWE-some Possibilities”

We, as SAR gardeners, stand in AWE of what we have inherited and must pass on to future generations. Our director, Sarah Ann Parler, has announced her theme, “Inspire Conservation through Education” and is using this as the basis of her regional project.

One challenge for the 2015-2017 administration is participation in the SAR special project. This project is doable by clubs and councils of any size in the diversified locations of our five-state region. Her desire is that everyone accepts responsibility to develop and implement educational projects which will focus on the conservation and preservation of our Air, Water and Earth (soil) resources. Choose your area of interest or combined interests of two or perhaps all three.  Does that not put you in AWE of project possibilities?

Awards for our SAR Special Project will honor clubs, councils and a state whose project focus is on Air, Water and Earth (soil). The entry should be submitted using the National Garden Club application form and is limited to three pages, including narrative presentation and photographic documentation.  Awards will be given both years.
