Garden Expansion Application – Now Open! (Due Monday, February 19, 2018)
Each year Gateway Greening is contacted by community garden members from all over St. Louis, looking for ways to expand their growing space or acquire new tools and materials at an affordable cost. This can be especially challenging for new or independent gardens who are working with limited budgets. Gateway Greening has created the biannual Garden Expansion Awards as a way to meet those needs.
Through the Garden Expansion Application, established In-Network community or youth gardens (who have met the eligibility requirements) may submit an application requesting basic garden supplies at no cost. By taking advantage of this opportunity, community and youth gardens all over St. Louis have received: additional raised beds, soil, compost, garden tools, wheelbarrows, compost bins, and tool sheds – many of the materials vital to growing a garden.
Do not miss out on an opportunity to grow your garden sustainability. Visit our website and download the 2018 Spring Garden Expansion Application.
