We’ve been informed of an opportunity to secure a $1,000 grant for community gardens–either existing ones or those in the development stage. The grant program is sponsored by the American Community Gardening Association and Tom’s of Maine. The application deadline is fast approaching, though, and materials are due 15 August.
The application form is available here. Completed applications should be sent to:
American Community Gardening Association National Office
c/o Council on the Environment of NYC
51 Chambers Street, Suite 228
New York, New York 10007

This opportunity was brought to our attention by the Common Ground Garden Program. Volunteers of the Common Ground Garden Program help low-income and limited-resource county residents to grow and eat more nutritious vegetables and fruits. Programs include Master Gardener volunteers (seasonal gardening presentations) and Fresh From The Garden volunteers (simple nutrition and food safety presentations).
