New Kansas Community Gardens Website

If you are a community gardener or someone interested in community garden, we have a new website with some resources available.

There are two main features of the website right now that may be of interest to you.

Second, there are 6 videos about community gardening that will be beneficial to folks that are trying to get a garden started. The topics are Why Start One?, Choosing a Site, Different Types, Common Features, Typical Costs, and Sources of Funding.

First, there is an application for a community garden grant. (Yes, I put it second because I wanted you to pay attention to what I said about the videos.) The grant is funded through the Kansas Health Foundation and is being administered through K-State Research & Extension. All the application materials and information is available on the website. Priority will be given to new community gardens, and awards can be up to $5,000 per garden. Up to 20 gardens will be funded each year for 3 years. Application deadline is March 1, 2012. Awards will by announced April 1.
