Looking for funding for community garden
I'm a student at the University of Michigan who is involved in a community gardens project in downtown Detroit. I'm looking for funding/grants available to buy materials for the garden. Also, there is a plot of land next to the garden site that is for sale. We're currnetly searching for money to help purchase this land so we can expand the community garden and transform the building on the property into a resource center. Does anyone have thoughts about funding opportunities available or where I should look? Does anyone have any fundraising ideas?
