National Gardening Association - $20,000
Completed in 1998, a comprehensive newsletter was created on the history, research and medicinal uses of aloe vera.
This grant supported and funded the production of the “The Wonders Of Aloe,” a newsletter that provided classroom information and experiments for students to fully understand the wonders of aloe.
Distributed to over 20,000 teachers (kindergarten through 8th grade), the newsletter contained various school projects that assisted the teachers in lesson planning.
Students learned about herbal remedies and how they can be used for self care. The newsletter called “The Wonders Of Aloe” touched the lives of over half a million consumers.
The National Gardening Association is located in Burlington, Vermont.
