2019 Applications Due May 15th

               Brooklin Garden Club Accepting Community Outreach Grant Applications

Do you have an idea for a creative way to improve our community's outdoor environment, or perhaps a new plan to educate our residents in terms of conservation, gardening or the like?

The Brooklin Garden Club may have help for you.  The group is currently accepting grant applications from local nonprofit organizations including local community improvement groups, schools, libraries and other institutions.

Grants of up to $500 will be considered for projects involving gardening, agriculture, forestry, conservation and ecology which are accessible to residents of the Club's member towns on the Blue Hill Peninsula.  Applications will be judged on efforts to promote public education in these fields or to develop or improve outdoor areas open to the public.  For example, last year the Club provided money for projects such as composting and recycling at a local day camp; greenhouse supplies at several area schools, and vegetable seedlings for a local food pantry, to name a few.

Awards will be limited to one per organization and cannot be used for maintenance or endowment purposes.  All groups applying must submit 501c3 numbers signifying their nonprofit status.  Applications must be received no later than May 15th.

The Brooklin Garden Club, a 501c3 organization, raises money through contributions, bequests in honor of members past and present, art and floral exhibitions and garden and house tours.
