ArkPHA Community Garden Mini Grant

As a part of National Public Health Week 2022, the Arkansas Public Health Association’s (ArkPHA) Nutrition Section is accepting applications for mini grant proposals from Arkansas communities for the purpose of sustaining an existing community garden program.  Through this opportunity, we wish to help communities in maintaining a community garden that will improve access to healthy food, combat food insecurities, and cultivate social and emotional well-being.

ArkPHA will partner with these community gardens to promote healthier communities by supporting the role of community gardens in improving access to fresh fruits and vegetables and encouraging a communal space for social interactions.
