Where do I get the money from?
« on: February 26, 2014, 09:44:56 PM »
The first question that most groups ask themselves is how they can get money to set-up and prepare a new allotment site or a new community garden.

Simply put, you don't need to dip into your own poskets, there is a surprising number of sources for money available to you. What surprises many people is that you can sometimes get funds to actually purchase a parcel of land for the right purpose,

Attached is a PDF file with a list of sources that you can contact.

If you're a CIO then you can apply to the Garfield Weston Foundation
