Grant Program for C-Ville Foodscapes Expands

Posted: Updated:

C-Ville Foodscapes is celebrating its second year. This month marks the anniversary of the organization that designs, installs and maintains vegetable gardens in the area.

It is also expanding the garden grants program.

Last year one person benefited from the collaborative effort with Quality Community Council to enable low-income households to get services for free.

Patrick Costello, of C'ville Foodscapes said of the person who received the garden,"She's been able to share the produce with her neighbors and use it as a way to connect with people in her neighborhood. That's been pretty wonderful to see. We're hoping to do four gardens this year."

Grant recipients receive a complete garden system including a garden bed, rain barrel and compost bin.
