DeKalb County Community Gardens seeks grants

DeKALB – The DeKalb County Community Gardens has entered the Seeds of Change Grant Program to receive one of two $20,000 grants or one of 15 $10,000 grants.

The grants will be awarded to organizations that support and develop sustainable, community-based gardening programs that focus on teaching people where their food comes from and how it gets to the plate.

Grant funds will be used to establish a community food forest and orchard, to establish a prairie and natural habitat for beehives, and to provide a permanent location to teach sustainable growing methods.

Community Gardens seeks community support through public voting until April 21, once per day, on Facebook.com/seedsofchange and at www.seedsofchangegrant.com. The top 50 organizations will move to the final phase. Grant winners will be announced about May 5.

For more information about the grant program or DeKalb County Community Gardens, contact Dan Kenney, executive director, at 815-793-0950 or dkenney53@hotmail.com.
