Mountain Garden Walks is sponsored by Green Mountain Gardeners, a garden club serving the communities of Londonderry, South Londonderry, Weston, Landgrove and Peru. Proceeds from the garden tour will benefit the Club’s Scholarship Fund; a $1,000 scholarship is awarded annually to a graduating senior planning to further his or her education with either college or vocational study. The field of study could be environmental sciences, landscape design, agriculture or other related to the mission of the Green Mountain Gardeners. Eligible students will be a graduate from one of the designated local schools. Selection is based on financial need and potential school and community impact. The scholarship is made possible through the generosity of Elizabeth Thieme, who was a founding member of the Green Mountain Gardeners.
