Seeds of Encouragement Program
Seeds of Encouragement are $50 stipends. The stipends go to anyone who is interested in community gardens.
Special attention is paid to young people and seniors. The money can be spent on seeds, tools, soil amendments,
books or other items or work that the recipient feels is appropriate for community gardens.
The term Seeds of Encouragement is derived from the name of the non-profit group www.CommunityGardensAsAppleseeds.info . The term Seeds serves as a metaphor for starting things as diverse as apple trees as well
as efforts to help heal the earth by promoting community gardens.
