Thank you to Lincoln Garden Club and Horticultural Society for its continued support.

Lincoln Garden Club and Horticultural Society has been a long-time generous supporter of Niagara College students and the School of Horticulture. Since 2002, the Club has donated annually towards purchasing greenhouse equipment, renovating the design studio, establishing campus gardens, and maintaining the ecological wetlands. In 2010, Lincoln Garden Club established an endowed fund for students in horticulture, greenhouse and Landscape Technician programs. Interest from this fund provides an annual bursary in perpetuity to help students in financial need.
