Grants and in-kind donations to Canada nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and schools for green space community projects. Funding is intended to encourage healthy eating, youth development, beautification of neighborhoods, and gardening education through gardening projects.

Canadian charitable organizations or non-profit groups are invited to apply for a grant to create or expand a garden or green space that will provide tangible benefits to the community in one or more of the following ways:

Address a health and wellness need, such as:

  • Promoting good health through healthy eating and/or gardening activities
  • Addressing community food security
  • Supporting therapeutic healing

Enhancing the environment, such as providing:

  • Pollinator habitat improvement
  • Beautification of a community space
  • Urban revitalization

Developing Youth through:

  • Engagement in community projects
  • Providing education and awareness related to gardening and gardening related topics
  • Interaction with the community and green spaces

The gardens or green spaces will need to be substantially completed in the year the grant is awarded and each group will be required to host a celebratory event (dedication, community activity, harvest) in order to be eligible for the additional grant.

Applicants will need to demonstrate that they have support from their local municipality and/or school authority along with a plan for the sustainability of the garden. Community involvement needs to be a key element of the project.
