About the Brooklyn Community Garden Fund:
The Brooklyn Community Garden Fund is a partnership between Brooklyn Community Foundation and Green Guerillas, New York City’s pioneering community garden organization, to make hard-to-get funding available to Brooklyn’s GreenThumb community garden groups. The overwhelming majority of Brooklyn’s community garden groups are not 501c3 organizations who can access funding from foundations or elected officials. They must often fund activities through membership dues or small fundraisers. This fund will allow gardeners to make vital garden improvements and undertake important community-building activities. With more people than ever entering community gardens to seek food, education, and volunteer opportunities, this fund arrives at a very opportune time for Brooklyn’s community gardening movement.
