EXETER — The Exeter Area Garden Club has presented 85 mini-grants to Seacoast Area gardeners in the past ten years. As of June 2020, they have awarded over $15,000 to area residents. Public areas both large and small have benefited from the program. Gardeners from Stratham and Exeter, as well as those from the greater seacoast area (Barrington-Kingston-Hampton-Epping), have received Mini-Grants.
Grant amounts are $100 to $400. Applications will be accepted between March 1st and May 1st, so applicants have time to think about what they plan to do once spring arrives. Applications and requirements are available at ExeterAreaGardenClub.com under Community Service.
If you are, or know of, an individual or a group who would like some financial assistance in sprucing up a public location in your community, please apply.
Recipients of the 2020 Mini-Grants were the Exeter Mills Chestnut Street Apartments, the Tenants’ Council of the Exeter Housing Authority, the Brentwood Historical Society, and the Ellis School in Fremont.
