March brings news of grant recipients especially for schools, expansion of community gardens and residents taking matters into their own hands despite city budget cuts (see Sacramento, CA). And some garden clubs have the fun of giving out grant monies as well.

A short month, February had fewer listings in our Group + Grants News tab. But we continue to see an incredible amount of support for community gardening across the nation. School programs and lots of youth-oriented projects are evident as well.

Arbor Day themes are getting into focus as we see ‘Tree Musketeers’ of El Segundo, CA—headed by wunderkinder—and the ‘Tree-mendous Tree Contest’ of Brunswick, GA among others.

The momentum is there. Click on the Groups + Grants News tab at the top of the page to view the latest organizational gardening, community education, beautification, and conservation creative—and creatively funded!—endeavors.
