Our Purpose

 Grants funded under this program must meet our mission. AAF&G is a social organization of women interested in agriculture and horticulture whose purpose is to

  • encourage an interest in and a knowledge of horticulture and its allied pursuits among women on the local, state, national and international levels;
  •  to preserve and beautify the environment by granting scholarships and fellowships to increase interest toward this end through education;
  • to engender informed awareness of and participation in community projects:
  • to distribute charitable gifts; and
  • to provide opportunities for learning about horticultural and environmental activities and issues.

Funding Priorities

The primary purpose of this funding opportunity is to further the mission of the Ann Arbor Branch, Woman’s National Farm and Garden Association (AAF&G).

Since 1946, Ann Arbor Farm & Garden has distributed more than $500,000 in charitable grants to a diverse group of local institutions and community projects. Along with beautification and environmental restoration efforts, several of the programs selected in recent years have focused on community vegetable gardens, introducing children to gardening, and those involved in local agriculture. We’ve awarded many grants to local institutions for the creation and restoration of public and specialty gardens, such as the Gaffield Children's Garden at Matthaei Botanical Gardens and the Centennial Shrub Collection at Nichols Arboretum. These green spaces enhance the environment and provide enjoyment for visitors of all ages.
