Thank you for your interest in the 2018 Community Garden Grant.
Supporting Community Vitality
Leaders that are committed to increasing the vitality of Atlanta’s neighborhoods through growing food in community are invited to apply for this $1,500 grant to improve garden infrastructure and supplies.
Gardens are transforming how we eat, grow and live in community. From rooftops, to churches, to vacant plots in our inner-city neighborhoods, Atlanta is experiencing a surge of interest in starting community gardens. However, volunteer leaders across Atlanta’s diverse neighborhoods are challenged to sustain their community gardens long-term.
In 2016, Food Well Alliance launched the Leaders Growing Community Gardens Initiative designed by eight local food organizations. With the goal of increasing leadership skills in community gardeners across metro Atlanta, the team worked to help the most passionate leaders develop their ability to manage and mobilize their neighborhood around growing sustainably-grown, local food.
Through workshops and engagement we listened and we learned from community gardeners, and in response we are announcing an additional resource for Atlanta’s vibrant community gardens located in Fulton, DeKalb, Cobb, Clayton, and Gwinnett counties.
Through our 2018 Community Garden Grant, we will invest a total of up to $50,000 to support neighborhood leaders and the long-term sustainability of their community gardens. Deadline: March 12 at 11:59pm.
