MBG Receives Grant from the Kiwanis Club

The Montgomery Botanical Gardens at Oak Park is delighted to announce that it has received a grant for $15,000 from the Kiwanis Club of Montgomery. The Kiwanis Club donated a total of $317,000 to local nonprofit agencies serving children.  

The grant awarded to the Montgomery Botanical Gardens is to improve access to the Outdoor Classroom; purchase additional tables and seating; and to bring in Charlie “Tinman” Lucas, a world-famous Alabama sculptor, to do workshops in the Outdoor Classroom in advance of our upcoming Sculpture in the Garden Exhibition.

The Grants Committee and the Education Committee of the Montgomery Botanical Gardens are working with the Montgomery Public Schools, local private schools, and art teachers across Alabama to render workshops and supply the Gardens with art exhibits. The exhibition will be open to all residents of Alabama. For more information contact Beth Wicker at ruralart@earthlink.net
