Dear ACGA friends and colleagues,

The Vermont Community Garden Network is happy to announce the winners of its first ever statewide mini-grant program. Through the mini-grant program, 48 school and community-based garden projects across the state will receive mini-grants of $50 to $400 each to develop their garden sites. $10,000 in total grant support will be distributed.

Several new community gardens were catalyzed by the VCGN, which is coordinated by Friends of Burlington Gardens, and funded through grant support from The Bay and Paul Foundations, The Windham Foundation, and the New England Grassroots Environment Fund.

VCGN organizers encourage other states to consider forming networks, holding statewide gatherings, and adopting mini-grant programs to support member gardens. This is a great way to "connect the dots" and help community and school gardeners to learn from one another.

For more information on the Vermont Community Garden Network and the VCGN Mini-Grant program, please visit the FBG web site at:

Yours in community gardening,
