The Jacob and Terese Hershsey Foundation renewing support of Central Texas Gardener

The Jacob and Terese Hershey Foundation has just renewed its support of Central Texas Gardener (CTG), KLRU’s educational horticulture series, with a $3,000 grant.  We are delighted that they have chosen to continue partnering in informing our community how to be good stewards of our natural resources.

CTG brings viewers the latest information about gardening the Austin way:  creating gardens that are fun, beautiful, manageable, and kind to our environment and wildlife.  Central Texas Gardener champions the use of xeric and native plants, urging viewers to eliminate or reduce their use of harmful chemicals, and show them how to reduce the demand for our most precious resource:  water.

This gift will help us demonstrate viable alternatives to “chemically-dependent gardening” that help to transform attitudes and behaviors in Austin and beyond.  Thank you!
