Compost Grant Winners Announced

Green Mountain Compost and the Vermont Community Garden Network have teamed up to support local gardens with donations of new compost, seeds, and other resources.

The spring 2014 grants were open to any community-based initiative or program that serves low-income gardeners in Chittenden County. Eligible applicants include schools, community groups, neighborhoods, workplaces, public housing sites, day care centers, senior centers, and food shelves.

Nine Chittenden County garden groups each received 3 cubic yards of compost. The grant package also included a bundle of seeds courtesy of High Mowing Seeds, American Meadows and Depot Home and Garden, and garden resources from the Vermont Community Garden Network.
