Grants for forty VT gardens

Senator Bernie Sanders recently announced the availability of federal funding to establish forty school community gardens across the state, with the goal to teach more children and teens how to grow fresh vegetables.

The federal grant provides technical assistance and mini-grants of $1,000. The program will be coordinated by Friends of Burlington Gardens, a long-term member of the Burlington Food Council. The deadline for submitting online applications is March 15, 2011 and grants will be awarded on April 12, 2011.
