GRANT RECIPIENTS SPEAK OUT IN SUPPORT OF LACF GRANTS PROGRAM

To honour World Landscape Architecture Month, we decided to ask our past grant recipients if and how LACF had helped them attain their goals. We received such a positive response that we've decided to share by posting their comments on our web site.  Each testimonial we received is linked to the author’s specific research project. You can celebrate World Landscape Architecture Month by learning more about the people and the research that LACF is proud to support. Just  click here.
