Let’s promote those entities that work hard to beautify Taos County!
In 2011 a new program was announced to recognize public entities for creating landscapes that beautify Taos County. The program solicits nominations from Los Jardineros members. Any member can nominate businesses, non-profits, or governments that have landscaped and maintained the area around their building. The recognition will consist of a letter and certificate from Los Jardineros. The Publicity Chair will submit a short article and photographs to the Taos News.
