The Louisville Grows Community Garden Grant 2017 application is currently CLOSED. Stay tuned for your opportunity to apply in Spring 2018!

It’s always a great time to get your community together and plan for a garden! If you’re starting a garden from scratch or want to better organize an existing garden, the Community Garden Toolkit will help you get growing. The Community Garden Grant supports new or expanding community gardens by providing infrastructure, tools, and other resources for gardens across Louisville.

The Louisville Grows 2017 Community Garden Grant provides up to $1,000 (monetary funds or in-kind materials) for new or expanding gardens managed by community organizations, garden clubs, after-school programs, neighborhood associations, faith-based organizations, and motivated community members in Louisville, KY. Schools and for-profit entities are not eligible. If a grant is awarded, groups are required to provide 10% in matching funds, which can be provided through collecting plot fees or hosting seedling sales.
