The Montana State University Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Education Program, or SNAP-Ed program, awarded six Growing Together Montana mini grants this year to Master Gardeners across the state.
Growing Together mini grants help fund materials for Master Gardener volunteer donation garden projects. Mini grants can be used to purchase materials like seeds, fencing and harvest supplies for food pantry donation gardens. The Montana Master Gardner Program provides technical assistance and research-based information on consumer horticulture to people in all Montana communities through qualified volunteers.
The grants, worth up to $2,000, have been used to start, reinvigorate or maintain donation gardens. Produce from the gardens will be distributed to local food banks and organizations that serve families with limited resources. Produce recipients will also receive an invitation for free in-person and virtual nutrition education classes taught by MSU Extension nutrition educators.
The 2021 projects that received grants are listed here.
