ABOUT THE COMMUNITY GARDEN GRANT PROGRAM:
The Louisville Grows Community Garden Grant provides funding and in-kind materials for new or expanding gardens managed by community organizations, garden clubs, after-school programs, neighborhood associations, faith-based organizations, and motivated community members.
Groups may apply for funding of garden construction, soil preparation, seeds and starts, tools, rain barrels or other irrigation methods, fencing, and/or compost and other gardening needs. If a grant is awarded, groups are required to provide 10% in matching funds.
All gardens awarded the grant will be designated as an official Louisville Grows garden, which provides the benefits of garden signage, year-round technical and educational support, groups of volunteers as requested, social media promotion, and networking opportunities to ensure the community garden’s long term sustainability and success.
