    In 2011, the garden property was sold to a private individual, but the garden’s legacy continues through the Rae Selling Berry Seed Bank & Plant Conservation Program. “Without the support of The Portland Garden Club members, such as Happy Hieronimus, the Seed Bank would not have been so successful through the years in achieving its mission of conserving the genetic resources of Oregon’s native plants for current and future generations,” said acting director Kris Freitag. Since its founding in 1934, ninety Founders Fund winners and runners-up have received more than $1.5 million to save thousands of acres of land and innumerable trees, to restore historic landmarks, to establish civic plantings, and to conduct research and educational projects across the country. While the amount of the award may have changed from the original award of $700 to $30,000, the intent remains the same. https://www.gcamerica.org/ One hundred Texas native seedlings, grown by The Garden Club of Houston (GCH) for its seventy-eighth annual Bulb & Plant Mart fundraiser, were donated to the George and Barbara Bush Presidential Grove after the fall fundraiser was restricted to online sales of bulbs due to COVID-19. GCH members enthusiastically planted their seedlings, plus another 500 native shrubs and wetland plants, aiding the park’s transition to native species. The Bush Grove is located along the Seymour Lieberman exercise trail where the late Mrs. Bush, who was an active GCH member, often exercised with President Bush and the family dogs.
