Community Garden Mini-Grants Available
Friends of Burlington Gardens is currently offering mini-grants of $500 to new community gardens throughout Vermont. The grants will be awarded to five groups that plan to develop new garden sites. The initiative is directed to Vermont towns, villages, and cities that would like to establish community gardens where residents can grow their own food. Funding for the program is provided by a Successful Communities grant from the Vermont Community Foundation. The application deadline is February 27, and will be awarded on March 20.
