Groups can apply for a community garden grant through the WSU Extension Community First Garden Project. The project provides money, technical support and education to new and established community gardens in Whatcom County.
Applications are accepted from community groups, such as churches, clubs and neighborhood associations. Applicants must form a leadership committee, show a willingness to work with the project, and provide a match in the form of volunteer hours or other donations.
Applications are due by Feb. 28.
To date, the project has 152 raised beds, two hoop houses, fencing, soil amendments, vegetable starts, seeds, tools and more.
