The MNLA Foundation is built on the green industry; on the thousands of men and women that have found a profession that they love. Through their work they beautify our cities, improve the environment, and enrich our lives and our landscapes.
The environment is enhanced by plants and other landscape improvements. However, these positive environmental contributions are threatened because fewer young people are choosing nursery, greenhouse, landscape and related careers.
We, as a foundation, value those students who have chosen to pursue horticulture or landscaping careers and are furthering their education. Over the last 18 years, we have partnered with the MNLA and its members to provide over $325,000 to students in local universities and technical colleges, and continually seek to enhance industry relationships with these students and their affiliated colleges.
To fulfill our mission and continue this work, we need your help and support in growing minds for a greener tomorrow! Please join us in supporting student scholarships in the green industry and call today's youth to consider a career that they too can be passionate about.
