This guide provides a framework for organizing and managing different types of community gardens with a primary focus on neighborhood community gardens, which typically share the following characteristics.
The Large Lot Program is a City of Chicago neighborhood stabilization initiative to help property owners, block clubs and non-profit groups in select Chicago neighborhoods to purchase City-owned land for $1 per parcel.
Church and community members have used the garden to grow produce that's donated to a food bank, and are now laying the foundation for a larger five-year project, installing irrigation and planting trees they hope will yield cherries, peaches, apples, pears and other fruit.
Carol Erickson, coordinator for University of Illinois Extension SNAP education program led a group that saw promise in an empty plot of land next to the food pantry in Mount Morris, IL. The goal was to help needy families grow their own produce. The result was much more.
The neighborhood around River Park is dense with apartments crowded with families living paycheck to paycheck. There’s little room for gardening, and little cash to put organic fruits and vegetables on the table.
A family doctor who lives in the Mission, is San Francisco's first property owner to obtain a tax break under the new Urban Agriculture Incentive Zone program. For the next five years, his property-tax bill will total $80 not $35,688.
For our 2015 round of giving, we expect to offer 100 full grants and roughly 60 partial grants. A full grant has a value $500 and normally consists of a cash grant of $300-400 with the remaining $100-$200 taking the form of seeds and gift certificates for garden supplies and KGI's online garden planner.
