    Small Grants Available 2022

    Unexpected expenses can take the joy out of a giving garden project.  If your giving garden needs help with unanticipated expenses such as broken or missing tools, willing volunteers who need a better style of glove, a rotting side-panel in the raised bed, broken hoses, or a yard or two of compost, you can apply for reimbursement from Seattle’s Giving Garden Network’s Small Grants Program.  We’ve a small pot of money to use for exactly these types of things and the process is surprisingly simple  Contact us at info@sggn.org to learn more about it. https://www.sggn.org/small-grants-guidelines/
