It may feel like winter will never end but we know how quickly that can change! Growing Friends of Helena has grants available to help plant trees and shrubs in public places. Our board will be reviewing grant applications this spring and we have helped with many community projects over the last 25 years. Our grant application and guidelines are available at our website,

Submit your grant application by April 30 to be considered for this spring and summer planting season. We also have a boulevard tree program, which helps individual home-owners plant trees along our public streets. If you have any questions, call 459-9203.
