At Grants Guys, we’ve covered a number of grant programs that support different types of gardening projects. The most supported of these by far are school garden projects. But community garden groups have some support as well. Either type of garden can apply for the greenhouse grant if their project plans to make use of a greenhouse structure as part of their garden.
Grants for Community Gardens
Community gardens bring together a diverse group of people from a city or town that enjoy working on a garden together. Usually these projects take undeveloped space and transform it into a green space that can be enjoyed by the entire community. Support for community gardening efforts usually comes from gardening supply companies. There is also a program that encourages children to start their own gardens to supply local food banks and anti-hunger charities with produce.
Grants for Greenhouses
This article covers a grant program that provides in-kind support for the purchase of a geodesic greenhouse and another that provides a start-up seed package. Both are available to school and community garden groups.
Grants for School Gardens
School gardening projects introduce kids to nutritious foods like fruits and vegetables, provide educational value outside the classroom and serve as valuable exercise for the school children involved. Grant support for school gardens comes from food manufacturers, grocery store chains, garden supply companies and private foundations. Check out these grant programs that provide support to school gardening efforts.
