    Surely there’s something that could apply for this here:

    http://www.grants.gov “Find. Apply. Succeed. Grants.gov is your source to FIND and APPLY for federal government grants. ”

    Also: “Today, Grants.gov is a central storehouse for information on over 1,000 grant programs and provides access to approximately $500 billion in annual awards. ”

    shrinkingranny-
    Chasing you all over the blog here! :-)
    Thank you for the grants info!
    Will make sure Ann S and Victoria see it soon.
    Victoria is on her way, thanks to all the anonymous bloggers here , to Fairbanks to attend the gardening conference.
    We are waiting for information from her – about ALL of it!
    Every last bit of info !

    I KNOW I posted here but I do not see it so will try again:-))
    Skrinking- I always want to write skinny – maybe a throw back to what people used to call me:-))

    We do have to get a little something going before we can apply for most of these but the future looks great for it. Thanks for the links.
    We just got a USDA guy out in our part of the state so I am hoping we can do some.

    I also came across an extension agent for our area EXCEPT it seems he doesn’t like to waste his time ‘messing’ with villages less than 100 people, which is most of our area. I am going to see if I can PURSUADE him to adopt a different thought pattern once I talk to the people who head up his funding:-))

    Check out my gardening journal as I am trying to get all the info I learned at the workshop posted and what we are working on.

    “austintx” posted this on the ‘flats:
    I know there are a bunch of gardeners here in the ‘flats. Ck. this gentleman out.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/05/magazine/05allen-t.html

    That is one terrific article. Surely something in there could prove useful here.

    There’s also a link to the guy’s own website:

    Hope I don’t get caught in moderation for the double linkage lol

    nhrtuvdxi –
    Thank you !
    Looking through the material there it does seem like a very possible fit for small village community garden efforts.
    Thanks!

    Thanks. I have passed this onto a number of villages that are working on community gardens.
