Jul 02, 2015 07:25PM
A new Dallas Community Garden Grant program recognizes the need to conserve and protect natural resources, including the restoration and preservation of healthy topsoil and the conservation of precious water resources. They have established a fund to accept donations for the Community Garden Donation Fund to encourage and support organic gardening, food donation and water conservation practices such as drip irrigation and rainwater harvesting.
The grant is available to any Dallas resident meeting the criteria for the purpose of creating or expanding a community garden with an emphasis on organic growing methods, food donation, and the use of rainwater harvesting and drip irrigation. Priority is given to community garden proposals located in food desserts or apartment complexes that facilitate community collaboration and involvement and that are able to donate some of their produce to a local food bank.
