Grant Application

The EMGVA has offered grants since 2008. Initially, the EMGVA supported various areas of the Arboretum to include NHC 4-H, the Ability Garden for individuals with disabilities, and other special learning gardens and projects within the Arboretum. In 2015, the EMGVA decided to open the grant application process to any school, library or local non-profit organization in New Hanover County. A few examples of previous grant winners are: LINC John E. Craig Urban Farm – Creating Raised Beds, NHC Extension Pollinator Garden, Wrightsville Beach Elementary Rain Water Garden.

Thanks to the annual EMGVA plant sale, held every spring (except during COVID) at the Arboretum, the annual amount available for grants has doubled to $20,000 in 2020.

Come see some of the previous grant projects at the Arboretum.

The Arboretum is free to all and open every day from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
