The CVNLA is actively involved in volunteer work like Habitat for Humanity. We also hold an annual workday at Lewis Ginter Botanic Garden.
Any money made from the CVNLA Winter Symposium/Short Course is applied to the following Horticulture scholarships each year:
- Harry Johnson Memorial Scholarship to a Horticulture student at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College
- Richard Nunnally Scholarship awarded to a Horticulture student at Chesterfield Technical Center
- Harris Wheeler Scholarship awarded to a Horticulture student at Richmond Technical Center
- Additionally, money is donated each year to the Horticulture Department at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College.
- There is money donated to Maymont each year toward funding for an intern entitled the “Peggy Singlemann Internship.”
- Money is also donated to Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden each year toward their internship program.
- This past year CVNLA was able to make a donation to the Bonnie Appleton Memorial Fund of the TREE Fund Endowment.
These donations are made possible by the generous sponsors of our Winter Symposium/Short Course each year that help defray expenses for the event.
We thank Lewis Ginter Botanic Garden for the use of their facility that is enjoyed by our attendees.
