Always wanted to build a playground, school garden, add to your neighborhood park, or library? The MSU extension office painstakingly lists available grant programs. If you don’t have a project in mind yet, check out available grants for ideas.
Intimidated by “grant writing”? There is no magic to it, and you don’t need a special degree, just a good dose of enthusiasm. A lot of grants are easy online forms. For others, shoot us a comment with your ideas, and we’ll connect you with community resources to help.
At the time of this writing the list contained close to 200 available grants. Below are just a few fun grants with upcoming due dates:
Jamba Juice (due 2/18): http://grants.kidsgardening.org/its-all-about-fruit-and-veggies
Grow Your Park (due 2/6): http://www.nrpa.org/garden/
Do something (Seeds and other grants, weekly): http://www.dosomething.org/grants/seed-grants
Enjoy, and start doing something 🙂
