2020 Fall Grant Recipients Announced

Community gardening looks a little different this year, but these determined volunteers are making it work! Careful planning and safety precautions ensure that our 2020 grantees are getting their projects in the ground.

In case you missed it, Unity Gardens selected 13 community groups to receive funding for native gardening projects in Anne Arundel County this fall. Almost $12,000 was awarded to homeowners’ associations, places of worship, and local nonprofits to complete native landscaping projects in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

Volunteers for these projects have planned safe, socially-distant outdoor planting schedules that utilize small groups of volunteers, and are in accordance with state guidelines around Covid-19.  

 Unity Gardens is thrilled that grant projects can continue this fall, after an uncertain spring. Groups receiving these grants will plant raingardens, undertake erosion control projects, and establish pollinator gardens– all using perennials and trees native to Maryland!
