Community Garden Volunteer Coordinator Grants are available to any neighbourhoods that manage and maintain community gardens as defined in the City’s Community Garden Policy. Eligible programs also include community growing projects such as the Urban Food Tree Stewardship Program and community boulevard gardening. The grants are intended to provide funding for a person to conduct outreach and coordinate volunteers and to promote educational growing opportunities for the community.
The 2020 intake for the Community Garden Volunteer Coordinator Grant program is open November 15, 2020 and will close January 31, 2021 which will allow for Council consideration of approval for the application in February 2021 and payment of approved grants in Spring 2021.
