Q: Can you suggest small gardening charities that accept donations in memory of people? Some state organizations aren’t appropriate because donations have to begin at such a large amount.
A: I am positive that any small garden organization would be happy to work with you on a memorial. Before you make a donation, check to see if they are a 501(c)(3) non-profit so your gift is tax deductible. I worked in DeKalb county for many years so three educational organizations there come immediately to mind, but there are many more deserving groups. Try Wonderland Gardens (www.wonderlandgardens.org), Oakhurst Community Garden (www.oakhurstgarden.org) and Dunwoody Nature Center (www.dunwoodynature.org).
