Grant writing is an amusing skill - Great examples exist in Michaelangelo's
letters to Pope Julius, A great one in Benvenuto Cellini's "Autobiography,"
and Leonardo's letters to the Medici, King Louis of France, etc.
But more appropos as a quick grantwriting guide, deliverable by Fedex from
The Only Grant Writing Book You'll Ever Need: Top Grant Writers and Grant
Givers Share Their Secrets!
Ellen Karsh; Paperback; Buy New: $11.20
This really IS the only grant- writing book you'll ever need. It's an
extremely helpful book that is both readable as well as comprehensive. The websites
are exhaustive, the appendix material useful, the glossary of terms highly
technical and inclusive, and the interviews with funders are unique. All in all -
On Community Garden grantwriting:
1) For starters, go to the American Community Gardening Association website -
there is a wealth of everything community garden there, lots of links to
gardens all over the USA, Canada and abroad -
2) Also, it's a great idea to join the ACGA. Gives you invitations to the
national conventions, access to educational materials, the drinking of adult
beverages with convivial company during conventions and garden tours - the works.
3) From the Clinton Community Garden in NYC; Not that they're is the best,
but they're online & easily cannibalized.
Please go to http://www.clintoncommunitygarden.org/ . Garden history,
governance, layout, mision statement, verbiage, annual events - the stuff may not be
the best ( I drafted alot of the content, alas) but if there's anything you
want to use, take any of our "wheels," customize them to your local needs,
and slap 'em on your wagon.
To encourage anyone else on the listserv who may be starting off, or looking
