MNLA Foundation Auctions and Raffle Fundraisers
MNLA Foundation has been working for you promoting the next generation to consider careers in the green industry. Our industry, your business, and event the environment are facing a crisis because so few young people are choosing green industry careers. The MNLA Foundation promises to deliver tools and promotion to enhance the image of nursery, greenhouse, landscape, irrigation, and tree care professions. The Foundation's Career Development Program will provide educational materials for students at various grade levels and help members establish relationships with schools. The program will inform teachers, guidance counselors, parents, and student about the legitimate career paths available in the green industry and promote horticulture and landscape programs at area colleges.
