The Arkansas Flower and Garden Show is inviting applications to the 2019 Greening of Arkansas grant program, which supports the development and ongoing care of community gardens, neighborhood parks, and high-profile public green spaces in Arkansas communities.
The program is intended to encourage organizations and civic groups to beautify their communities through horticulture. To that end, grants of up to $2,500 will be awarded to nonprofit and civic groups for beautification projects on public land. Grant funds may be used to develop or enhance community gardens, neighborhood parks, and public spaces, but may only be used for the project in the area defined in the project description; in addition, 50 percent of the funds must be used for the purchase of trees, shrubs, and/or flowers.
To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit community-based or civic organization located in the State of Arkansas.
