In this week’s blog we have collected a list of grant opportunities for starting and growing your community garden. The first will be open in just a few days. Put the others on your calendar so you're alerted to apply during their application period.
The gardeners must be getting the itch to plan their gardens as we have gotten numerous requests lately for grants for community and school gardens. We have received requests for grants for gardens that will simply beautify a community. Some requests are more a necessity, to grow food for people without access to fruits and vegetables. Schools have been asking for grants to add a garden to their school curriculum, to teach healthy eating, nutrition, and science. No matter why you want to start or upgrade a garden, below are some grant opportunities that may help you.
