EMG Community Garden Grant
Sedgwick County Extension Master Gardeners sponsor Community Garden Grant
Community gardens can develop a sense of community and provide improved access to fresh produce for urban residents, but developing a new garden can take more money than volunteers can provide.
The Sedgwick County Extension Master Gardeners are sponsoring a new Community Garden Grant, available to new or established community gardens in Sedgwick County. The grant will provide tools, seeds, plants, irrigation equipment, raised beds, or soil improvement materials worth $50, $100, or $150 per garden.
The grant application is available at the Sedgwick County Extension Education Center at 21st St. N and Ridge Rd. in Wichita. The application can also be downloaded from the Extension website: http://sedgwick.ksu.edu. The application deadline is March 9, 2011 by 5 p.m. Grant recipients will be notified by April 1, 2011.
