Community Gardens Spring Funding

2024 Spring Funding applications for the NLR Community Garden Program are due DECEMBER 15, 2023!

This opportunity is available to communities interested in starting and maintaining a community garden and/or improving an existing garden within @cityofnlr limits. Community groups, faith-based organization, schools, and non-profits may request up to $1,500 (if new) or $5,000 (if returning) for garden materials, tools, and certain other expenses. Joining our program grants you and your garden access to free seeds, plants, soil amendments, and the opportunity to connect and collaborate with fellow gardeners!

We offer seasonal funding opportunities twice a year – once for the fall season, due June 15, and once for the spring season, due December 15. Applications may be submitted at ANY POINT throughout the year, but will only be reviewed following the respective dates. Individual gardens are limited to one (1) funding request annually. Funding approval is dependent on review and approval by both the Garden Advisory Committee (GAC) and City Council.
