Good evening . I am currently working at the Youth House and have noticed that it is suitable to be a wonderful garden for flowers or plant nursery. As a club president. Look for who finances this project. We have more than 100 young people and children involved in this club. thank you

Welcome! to NGA! I'm sure there are members here who have started community gardens like this. I have no experience with this, but it seems like it would be best to try to contact local groups in your area who might be interested in helping to get the garden going. It would be wonderful for the children to learn to garden and grow food and flowers! Good luck and I hope you can find some help with this project!

Here in the US, local government and university organizations finance community garden projects such as what you are doing. We have an organization of Master Gardeners affiliated with the local County Extension service - a combined County and university project.

The Master Gardeners are volunteers (donate their time and expertise for free) and raise money by holding a plant sale each year. Then Master Gardeners can apply for grants for approved community projects. There is oversight, and accountability in that we just show that we did indeed spend the money for the project by presenting receipts for supplies, seeds, tools, gloves etc.

Hi abdou,

You might want to contact a Botanical Garden in your area or a University to see if perhaps they can give any insight and possible financial assistance for your program. It is a wonderful endeavor to teach young children about growing and tending a garden.

I believe that in the past The National Gardening Association had some type of grants. Don't know what the current status is of that program. @dave?

Those kinds of things continue to be done, but via KidsGardening.org.

Abdou is in Morocco, folks. I don't think they have the same grant programs there that we have, but the botanical garden or university might have something for him.

That's true, that site has grants for people in the US only. I hope your country might have something similar, Abdou.
