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. Funding may be requested to improve an existing garden or to start a new garden. The purpose of this program is to increase access to fruits and vegetables and to provide an opportunity for physical activity related to gardening.

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:
1) Provide foods to at-risk people (low income, children, or pregnant women)
2) Encourage joint-use between the applicant and other community, citizen, or school groups
3) Are located in community or neighborhood parks in St. Clair County
