Each year, we receive many requests from community organizations, schools, and other entities seeking funding to build gardens. The good news is that grants for gardens are numerous. But because there are so many funding options for garden-building projects, it can be challenging to know where best to focus your application efforts.
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.
Garden-themed school lessons teach nutrition, math, science, and other subjects all while having fun outdoors and letting kids get their hands dirty. School gardens are widely popular and grants to support them are numerous. Below is a list of just a few school garden grants. Some don't open until later this year. Plan in advance. Put the dates on your calendar.
