AITC Garden Mini-Grant
The Outdoor Classroom Garden Mini-Grant Program is designed to show that agriculture is an integral part of our everyday environment. Farms, wildlife, forestry, people and cities are all interrelated with agriculture. Since most of Arkansas wildlife resides on and feeds off of private property, including farms and timber lands, the gardens can demonstrate the connection between agriculture, food, fiber, conservation, wildlife and urban environment.
Applications are evaluated for proper criteria and study objectives before grants are awarded. Money will be awarded by the county Farm Bureau leadership. Recognition may be given on both the state and local level. There is no application deadline. Applications will be accepted as long as grant funding is available. The grants are matching funds grants, up to $500 may be awarded for new garden sites. Up to $250 in matching funds may be awarded for on-going garden projects.
