Gardening for Greenbacks
The Gardening for Greenbacks program assists entrepreneurs that are seeking to do urban farming as a "for-profit" venture. The program helps to advance the food system development agenda to ensure that every resident has access to fresh, healthy, affordable food. To apply, applicants need to successfully complete market garden training, have an executed lease on a plot of land, and secure contracts/agreements to sell the produce grown to local venues. Eligible costs include tools and equipment, display tables, booths, hoop houses, irrigation systems, rain barrels, construction materials, signage, fencing and soil.
For complete program details and eligibility requirements, please download the Gardening for Greenbacks brochure.
