Community garden funding available

Nov 1st, 2016 | Category: Growing

BELLINGHAM – Grants are now available through the Community First Garden Project, a WSU Whatcom County Extension Project now in its 8th year. Small community gardens, both new and existing throughout Whatcom County, can apply for funding by Dec. 2. The project has funded items such as deer fencing, lumber for raised beds, drip irrigation, tools, supplies, materials for garden sheds and more. Technical support and education are also offered. Applications will be reviewed by the CFG Steering Committee and recipients will be notified in early February 2017. For more information, contact Beth Chisholm at beth.chisholm@wsu.edu. The program is made possible through a generous grant from the Mary Redman Foundation.
