Plants for Habitat for Humanity -- A Community Outreach Project
Milwaukee District Garden Clubs have been working with Habitat for Humanity for fifteen years to provide plants, small shrubs, trees, garden tools and gardening information to Habitat for Humanity homeowners in Milwaukee. We support this project by sharing plants from our gardens and donating purchased annuals or perennials. The MAM Garden Club also provides planters, soil, pollinator-attracting plants and volunteers to teach Habitat for Humanity homeowners how to plant a container garden. Homeowners keep the planters and take them home.
