Community Garden Funding

Each of the RI Conservation Districts are seeking to fund three community garden projects with grants up to $8,900 each through the People’s Garden Initiative.

Proposals are accepted January 21, 2022 - March 18, 2022.

Funding can be spent on items such as tools, soil, seed, fertilizer, soil additives, irrigation materials, garden materials, lumber, high tunnels, pollinator plants, etc. Although funding cannot be used to maintain existing gardens, it may be used to create new garden beds at a site where other gardens already exist.

For more information you can view the People’s Garden Project RFP and application by going online or contacting your local conservation district for more information.
