Heritage Garden Club receives grants

The Heritage Garden Club of Saratoga Springs has received two grants - a $1,770 Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust Foundation grant and a $200 grant from the Saratoga Springs Rotary. Both will be used to support the club’s spring, summer and fall projects. 

Spearheaded by a group of members led by Lee Nelson, the grants will insure blooms at projects that include the Saratoga Springs Visitor Center Garden, Gideon Putnam Cemetery, Garden of Hope Hospital, Woodlawn Program, and Memorial Plaques. 

Also, a campership identified as the Alfred Z. Solomon Campership will be offered to an 11- or 12-year-old for a week at Camp Colby, just outside Saranac Village, to discover the dynamics of the natural world. Recommendations will come from Saratoga Springs public school teachers. 

The current Heritage Garden Club was founded in 1987 as a chapter of National Garden Clubs Inc. and the Federated Garden Clubs of New York State Inc. Today its objective is to strive to promote tranquility using flowers and plant material and to take part in civic and environmental improvements.
