About the Lunaria Grant Program
The Idaho Botanical Garden’s Lunaria Grant Program began in 2012. It is based on a similar grant program established by the Lunaria League, a 501c3 horticulture organization that is no longer active. The Idaho Botanical Garden (IBG) program will continue the goals of the original program.
This grant program will support new and exciting endeavors within the State of Idaho that encourage and cultivate horticulture and related educational projects.
