The GardenBurger sponsored community garden grant was created to encourage healthy eating and to support community gardening.
Community gardening can range from creating a small school garden to adopting an abandoned plot of land and turning it into something useful and beautiful. Neighborhood associations, schools, youth groups, community centers, camps, clubs – as long as your activities are garden-related, you’re encouraged to apply.
The grant amount nonprofits can apply for starts at $1,000 and goes up to a max of $10,000. So a nice chunk of change can be had by applying. Just imagine the plentiful garden or neighborhood veggie oasis that your org can create with this grant money.
Your org or association has to be a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit to be eligible, you must be a US citizen, 21 years or older, and the deadline to submit your application is May 15, 2009.
