Garden enhancement micro-grant

The garden enhancement micro-grant is supported by a fund established with money from the City of Madison’s general budget and a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). This fund is maintained by individual donors, gardens’ contributions of a portion of their plot fee income, and proceeds from our annual Gardens Network Summit.

The fund is overseen by Rooted WI, Inc, which sets financial goals, reviews applications, and approves awards.
