The pandemic has made us aware of the need for fresh, safe food. Has your Guilford County neighborhood, church, or other citizens group thought about starting a community garden next spring? The Extension Master Gardener Volunteers are offering grants in the amount of $250 each to help with start-up expenses for community gardens that will be started in 2022. Grant recipients will be assigned an Extension Master Gardener Volunteer as a garden mentor.

The application is due no later than January 11, 2022. The application requests a description of the planned project, a plan for going forward, and a detailed account of how the money will be used.

Grant Details and Application

For a paper application email Lauren Taubert.

Questions about the grant process may be directed to Deborah Pelli.

The Start-Up Grant Program is Sponsored by NC State Extension and Master Gardener℠ volunteers of Guilford County.
