Mini-Grants Available to Launch Community Gardens in Vermont
Friends of Burlington Gardens has recently announced it will award up to ten $500 mini-grants to help fund the start-up of community gardens in Vermont communities that lack places where residents can grow their own food. The statewide program will provide seed money to local groups that plan to open gardens in spring 2009. Eligible garden sites must be at least 2,500 square feet and provide at least ten plots for local residents. To learn more about the program, visit Friends of Burlington Gardens.
