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 Guilford County Extension Master Gardener Volunteers are offering grants in the amount of $250 each to help with start-up expenses for new community gardens. Grant recipients will be assigned an Extension Master Gardener Volunteer as a garden mentor.
The application deadline is Jan. 11. The application requires a project description, project details, details of money usage and future garden plans.
