Grants of up to $1,000 to St. Clair County, Illinois schools, municipalities, food pantries, neighborhoods, parks, churches, and other groups and organizations for community garden projects.

In order to qualify for a grant, the garden project must devote at least 75% of the garden space to food rather than flowers. Applications must demonstrate a plan to sustain the garden and keep the project going.
Preferential consideration will be given to garden projects that:
