The Louisville Grows 2019 Community Garden Grant will provide recipients up to $1,000 in materials or services for new or expanding gardens managed by community organizations, garden clubs, after-school programs, neighborhood associations, faith-based organizations, and motivated community members. If a grant is awarded, groups are required to provide 10% in matching funds.
Groups may apply for funding of garden construction, soil preparation, seeds and starts, tools, rain barrels or other irrigation methods, fencing, and/or compost. In addition to providing funding, all gardens that receive funding will be designated as an official recipient of the Louisville Grows 2019 Community Garden Grant, which provides the benefits of garden signage, year round technical and educational support, groups of volunteers as requested, social media promotion, and networking opportunities to ensure the community garden’s long term success.

Received a wheelbarrow and lots of garden tools.Now every one of our gardeners has exactly what they need to tend their crops and maintain the common areas of our garden. This was a transformative year for us. We could not have done it without Louisville Grows. We are so grateful – thank you!”-Rachel Peterson, Shelby Park Community Garden, 2018 Community Garden Grant Recipient
