Apply Now For Community Garden Sustainability Fund Support In Allegheny County

The Grow Pittsburgh Community Garden Sustainability Fund is now accepting applications for two types of support for members of community food gardens.  The deadline for applications is June 1.
Are you a member of a community food garden? Could your garden use some support to become more sustainable?
Apply to the Community Garden Sustainability Fund for materials like compost, fencing and tools or technical assistance like consulting and educational programming.
Small Potatoes Awards are generally for time sensitive projects that do not require extensive staff time, and are fairly inexpensive. We have set an eight week timeline which is intended to speed up the process of getting awarded applicants the materials needed to get growing!  Applications can be submitted June 1, August 1 and October 1.
Big Tomatoes Awards are time-intensive projects that tend to have a higher dollar amount. Accepted projects will include a site visit by staff before any work begins.  The deadline for applications is June 1.
The Community Garden Sustainability Fund is a project of the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy and Grow Pittsburgh that exists to provide support to existing community food gardens in Allegheny County. The program has been active since 2012, having supported 60 community gardens with nearly $35,000 in materials, not including staff time.
Visit the Grow Pittsburgh Community Garden Sustainability Fund webpage for all the details.
