St Louis Master Gardeners Support "Giving Grove" Program

​​A continuing education presentation on Gateway Greening’s “Giving Grove” program was delivered on July 26th by Dean Gunderson, Garden Program Manager at GG.  Dean gave a very informative talk on the program’s purpose,  which focuses on growing different fruit and nut crops in St. Louis community gardens.  Ned Seigel, former Chairman of the St. Louis Master Gardeners Advisory Committee, presented Dean with a check for $3000 in support of this program.


Over the past 10 years, the St Louis Master Gardeners have given over $80,000 to fund the operations/projects of more than 26 organizations in the St Louis area.  This includes organizations such as Forest Releaf of Missouri, Gateway Greening, Meremac Community College Scholarships, the Missouri Botanical Garden, Missourians for Monarchs and many more.
