Haxtun Schools recently received a $15,000 grant from the Colorado Garden Foundation. This grant money will support a high school parking lot median landscaping project. In April 2016 CGF awarded $479,004, including matching grants of $25,800 provided by Bellco, to 54 Colorado organizations for horticulture-related grants. Grants range from $500 to $100,000 to fund school community gardens, greenhouses, educational programs, sensory gardens, butterfly gardens and landscaping and garden irrigation, just to name a few.
