A few years ago I followed three gardeners at different communty gardens through the season. Community gardens are very important, providing a place to grow for people who don't have the room at home.
The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) has partnered with the Darden Restaurants Foundation to make available grants for community gardens that benefit families and individuals of low-income status.
This would be a great opportunity to obtain funds to help build or expand a community garden that fosters stewardship and outdoor activity while donating the produce to those in need. The grants will range from $2,500 to $7,500 and will be awarded to 10 communities.
Application deadline: Wed., Feb. 6, 2013.
