1 2015 Community Garden Start-Up Assistance Application The Garden Project PO Box Lansing, MI Phone: (517) Fax: (517) About The Garden Project: The Garden Project is a program of the Greater Lansing Food Bank dedicated to growing healthy food and cultivating connections. The Garden Project provides gardening opportunities so that community members can grow, harvest, prepare and preserve their own vegetables and fruits. Through the cultivation of fresh food, The Garden Project also aspires to cultivate community connections as families and neighbors garden together, fostering a sense of pride in well-tended gardens that serve as community gathering spaces. What is a Community Garden? Very simply, it is: Any piece of land gardened by a group of people. It can be urban, suburban, or rural. It can grow flowers, vegetables or community. It can be one community plot, or can be many individual plots. It can be at a school, hospital, or in a neighborhood. It can also be a series of plots dedicated to "urban agriculture" where the produce is grown for a market --American Community Gardening Association Garden Start-Up Assistance: In 2015, The Garden Project will provide start-up assistance to a limited number of groups. Garden Project assistance may include garden resources such as tilling, seeds & plant starts, tools, construction material, educational assistance, training and more. A more detailed list is provided on the following page. This application must be completed in order to be eligible to receive start-up assistance. Examples of groups eligible to start new gardens include block clubs, groups of school personnel or PTA s, churches, non-profit service organizations, or a group that has formed specifically to start a garden.
