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.

Click here to vote now!

The 50 entries with the most votes will move on to the final judging phase. will Top 50  entries will be announced on April 24, 2017. The final grant recipients will be announced on May 8, 2017.
If you want to learn more about the Sanford Community Garden, go visit! The garden is located  on the corner of 18th Street Park, Sanford off Highway 17-92. Every second Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. the gardens hosts a guest speaker and serves delicious donuts. It’s a great way to see how they get down in the dirt and make new friends!

The Sanford Community Garden is the only community garden in our county that is not linked to a church or school and is open to all residents to provide a space to learn to grow and enjoy fresh organic produce.
