Vote for the Sanford Community Garden! The organization is vying for a grant to rebuild the garden, create an educational area, and much more!
The Sanford Community Garden has a chance at a sizable but highly competitive national grant which would allow the organization to rebuild all 56 of its beds, (which it desperately needs), get a better fence which would prevent the squirrels from galloping through, replace the rusted out shed, expand the lot, and create an educational area to better serve and educate our community-especially the kids.
The garden needs your daily votes to secure a grant and make these changes possible! It takes just a few seconds via this link, and again, every day you can vote counts through April 19th.
