2012 Adopt the Public Way Garden Grant -  APPLICATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED

Posted on January 23, 2012

Under the cover of today’s snow are summer’s plants, getting ready to send up their pale shoots. Gardeners like to think about such things and dream of spreading flowers and shrubs in every parkway, traffic circle and park. If this is you, the Rogers Park Garden Group (RPGG) wants to help. Grants of up to $500 for plant material, soil amendments, and mulch are available to anyone who is creating, restoring, or enhancing a garden located in the public way. The grants program is called, “Adopt the Public Way.” Anyone is eligible, but the garden must be in Rogers Park, east of Ridge and north of Devon. Grants are also available for anyone running a youth program that wants to add gardening to the activities; and for the youth projects, the gardens don’t have to be in the public way.

What you need to do: Complete a grant application.  You can get your grant application by downloading either the Adopt or Children’s grant applications here.

When you need to do it by: March 16, 2012 (youth programs can apply anytime throughout the year).

Adopt the Public Way is made possible by the generous contributions of the Rogers Park Garden Group members, donors and sponsors, and by the proceeds from our Spring and Fall plant sales. The RPGG would also like to thank our many speakers, tour guides, and meander hosts for sharing their expertise, time, and frequent contributions of items to the RPGG raffles that also support these grant activities.
