U of M Dearborn:  Community Organic Garden Awards

2016 Conference of the Michigan Garden Clubs – Awards

Two landscape features at the Community Organic Garden (COG), the Enabling Garden, and the Monarch Butterfly Waystation, were the focus of awards given at the 2016 Conference of the Michigan Garden Clubs, which took place in Frankenmuth.

The EIC would especially like to acknowledge the wonderful volunteer efforts of Mary Lenart, whose direction and vision for these two garden sites has been so influential in enhancing the overall quality of life experience at the COG. Congratulations, Mary, on these well-deserved award acknowledgements!
