Dear Community Gardeners,
2020 Master Gardener Volunteers of Guilford County Community Garden Start-Up Grant Program
The pandemic has made us aware of the need for fresh, safe food and your community garden has helped a lot with that effort. Some of your friends and neighbors may have expressed an interest in starting a community garden of their own. If so, please let them know about this opportunity. The Guilford County Extension Master Gardener Volunteers are offering grants in the amount of $250 each to help with start-up expenses for new community gardens. Grant recipients will be assigned an Extension Master Gardener Volunteer as a garden mentor.
The application is due no later than January 11, 2021. The application requests a description of the project planned, actions already taken toward realizing the project, a plan for going forward, and a detailed account of how the money will be used.
Wishing you all health and wellness,
Community & School Garden Agent
NC Cooperative Extension Guilford County
