From Beverly Shafer, Norman Singer Endowment Fund Chair (via Carol Eichler):
The Norman Singer Endowment Fund is requesting applications for grants for 2009. Next year NARGS will be celebrating it's 75th anniversary. The Endowment Fund was begun by Norman Singer on the occasion of the 50th year of the American Rock Garden Society. The Fund "is intended to be a resource in support of special, one-time projects that advance the art and science of rock gardening." Many types of projects have been supported - from publications, rock garden construction and preservation, public education, and seed collection.
Please make your members aware of the Fund and encourage anyone with an appropriate project to apply. The guidelines are on the NARGS website (http://www.nargs.org). If you have any questions please contact me. Also, please note that the application deadline is January 16th due to the early date of the Annual Meeting.
